Description Tim Waugh 2010-11-11 08:32:47 EST
Description of problem: Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 ships HPLIP-3.9.8. Since that release, the core driver has been re-written (October 2009) and support for many more printer models has been added. The re-written driver has now had a year of testing and bug-fixing. Without re-basing HPLIP it will be hard to add support for newer printers so I am proposing a re-base to a newer version. As shown on the web page below, support has been added for 105 more printer models in releases since then: http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/supported_devices/combined.html Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): hplip-3.9.8-33.el6
