Firefox silently fails in 1.3

Trying to run Firefox silently fails. Upon trying to launch Firefox I see ~1/2 second of CPU activity and then nothing. Same symptoms whether from menu or cmd line. I am guessing that this is also why the printer configuration menu item silently fails. (using links2 to http://localhost:631 does work)

Printing problems in 1.3

rc.cupsd has 2 lines that refer to loading the parport/lp modules, but they do not get loaded. Loading them by hand via modprobe seems to work fine, at least the printer initializes. However, the only print spooler I can find is cups-lpd, which wants to run from (x)inetd, which doesn't seem to exist. Trying to run cups-lpd& will cause it to suspend.

Reclaimable space in 1.3 (very very minor issue)

I noticed some man pages that don't have corresponding programs. (examples: lpadmin, lpdomatic) It's probably not that much space (a meg or so maybe), but might add up to enough to allow another/newer/larger package on the cd. It saves a few more meg (quick test says about 7.5) to gzip the man pages and have man as a script that gunzips and passes the result to the original man command.

the usr/share/man dir is compresset using squashfs so there is no point in adding another layer of compression, it would just slow down everything. consider that with the present setup the man pages are already stored in compressed format -jrml
