What happened to CUPS (server.crt symlink)

When reinstalling Ubuntu 8.10 from a remastersys iso (put on a USB drive with netbootn), CUPS would not start due to complaints about a bad symlink. omns offered fix at crunchbanglinuxforums by editing the startup script. EYo offered a more elegant fix to create the missing ssl links.

# cd /etc/ssl/certs/
# make-ssl-cert generate-default-snakeoil

PiotrAF also suggests “sudo apt-get install –reinstall ssl-cert” to tackle this from the other end.

that seems to work. it will probably be fixed in the install packages soon (if not already). It does raise the question about what these packages are doing …
