Description of problem:
See the following in /var/log/messages

Sep 9 09:23:38 tlondon python: hp-makeuri: warning: hp-makeuri should not be run as root.
System is up to date rawhide.
Senario (I think) is printing from kvm WinXP guest.
WinXP printer is set up via "http://10.0.2.2:631/printers/HP1300
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Believe occurs each time I print
Steps to Reproduce:
1. setup kvm/WinXP guest to print through 'http://10.0.2.2:631/printers/HP1300'
2. print in kvm/WinXP guest
3. watch log ....
It'll be every time you connect the printer, not every time you print. Changing component to hal-cups-utils.
As far as I can tell this warning is just wrong.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
I haven't seen this message for quite some time.
I'm running rawhide, so hard for me to test with F10.
Closing as "rawhide".
hplip-2.8.12-6.fc10 has been pushed to the Fedora 10 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
