upstart does not start cupsd and nut/upsd
Status in “upstart” package in Ubuntu:
On my 10.04.3 LTS cupsd never starts automatically, although it is
configured to do so. Even manually adding cupsd to the Start Programs
dialog doesn't do the trick.
Starting cupsd manually works absolutely flawless.
The same happens with nutd. Nut is never started automatically, but
start with no errors when done from a shell.
I have browsed several bug reports on and off Launchpad describing the
problem as a bug in Upstart (Upstart experiencing a race condition
that may render the console read-only), that was already fixed by the
Upstart devs. There is also a Launchpad bug - that is closed because
there is a bugfix. But as long as the bugfix is not rolled out to
users... Several people beg to re-open this.
I am using 10.04 LTS - and it still sticks to version 0.6.5-8 of
upstart. Obvoiously no modern version of Upstart ever got released for
Lucid. I cannot upgrade Upstart without major operations beyond normal
packet installation routine, and I do not want to risk rendering my
system unusable if Upstart completely fails after upgrading it to
DistroRelease: Ubuntu 10.04
