Description

We do not ship with an /etc/printcap file but it appears that bsnmpd does not like that fact. When probed in various ways (especially when querying SNMP OID 1.3.6.1.2.1.25.3.5 ), bsnmpd logs an error to the system log:

snmpd[67512]: hrPrinterTable: printcap entry for <noname?> has errors, skipping

With an empty /etc/printcap (touch /etc/printcap), no errors are logged.

We could include a blank printcap or include the FreeBSD default printcap file which is logically empty as it all of its contents are comments.

Somehow I completely missed that ticket when looking into this. I'll close the older one out since this one has a viable workaround on it.

Seems to be fine now, no more log spam and the dummy printcap file is there as expected.
