Errors from install script
Oh, I almost forgot - when you install package without "--enable-rpm-install"
option, you will see those errors. That's why I had to write so many lines in
I had a sleep and now I see that I missed two things:
- Obsoletes: hpijs
- hplip should be split into two packages - driver and the GUI app.
Now hplip requires X server :/
Tim, how does this relate to both hpijs and hpoj?
It's newer than both. I'm watching it already, but waiting until the "new
project" bugs are shaken out before switching Fedora Core over to it.
Tim, can you put it in rawhide so it can be tested?
Bill: "A distribution can mix and match the HPLIP package in order to
support a un-di or bi-di solution. HPIJS is part of the HPLIP package.
HPLIP is intended to replace HPOJ for all local USB and JetDirect
connectivity. HPLIP is similar to HPOJ, but different. HPLIP has
persistent daemons (hpiod, hpssd) like HPOJ, but is more friendly.
HPLIP does not require a ptal-init setup. The "hp" backend will look
like any other CUPS backend that can be installed as needed. The
daemons use a standard init.d start/stop script."
It's quite a bit work than just dumping the RPM in. When I get some
time I will take a look, but it might miss FC4.

Retargetting for FC5.
