cupsd not starting? Try this...

My cupsd wasn't starting on boot, I'd always have to do:
sudo service cups restart
Make sure the only thing in /etc/network/interfaces is the following two lines:
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

I had the definition of eth0 in there, turns out it was actually causing a problem. Eth0 also wasn't showing up in the network manager notification area from nm-applet, so I commented out the /etc/network/interfaces lines related to eth0 and set up an entry in network manager for the specific MAC address of the on-board ethernet with the same parameters that I had in /etc/network/interfaces.
Rebooted, seems to work.
