Description of problem:
A yum update last week-end (Saturday 30/6/2007) installed some new 126.96.36.199
gutenprint RPMs which do not work.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every time. Errors in /var/log/cups/error_log
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot system with latest updated FC6 as of 30/6/2007.
2. Attempt to print using gutenprint drivers to say Epson C42 printer.
1. Nothing prints.
2. Cups disables queue.
3. Errors in /var/log/cups/error_log complain that the version of PPD files does
not match gutenprint/cups release, i.e. 188.8.131.52.
Something should have printed.
Going back to the previous set of gutenprint extras RPMs (184.108.40.206) fixes the
Please try 5.0.1-2.fc6 (yum update 'gutenprint*'). Does that fix the problem
for you? Make sure you include gutenprint-foomatic in the update: it's needed
to update the PPD files.
Looks good. Will try it on the original machine and let you know.
Confirmed fixed on FC6 fully udpated.
