Please try these packages:


Download them and use 'rpm -Fvh hplip*.rpm hpijs*.rpm libsane-hpaio*.rpm' to install them.

Does the problem still occur?  If so please look in /var/log/messages to see if there are any error messages that occur around the time of the fault.

Comment 6 Enrico Scantamburlo 2009-04-22 11:01:33 EDT
thanks for the fast fix but it does still not work, see log
Comment 7 Tim Waugh 2009-04-22 11:43:51 EDT
Does 'dmesg' still show a segfault from the 'hp' process?

Comment 9 Tim Waugh 2009-04-22 11:59:29 EDT
Next step is to look a little closer at what the hp backend is up to.  Please install the strace package (yum install strace) and do this, as root:

set $(ps ax|grep [c]upsd)
strace -fp $1 2>cupsd.txt

and then print a page as normal.  Once it has failed, press control-C to stop the strace program, and attach the cupsd.txt file to this bug report.  Thanks.

More investigation required but fixing component to be a source package.

I have installed Fedora 10 i686 on my desktop and I have exactly the same problem with HP LaserJet P1005. I have installed hplip and hpijs and a lot of other things. The troubleshooter advises me to reconsider the settings of the system firewall. Do you think this would help, and do you have any idea what to change in the firewall?!
Comment 13 vaeood 2009-05-14 01:08:42 EDT
Thank you for the assistance. I managed to install the printer driver at last, and it is printing with the speed of light in vacuum. I uninstalled from the Package Installer the three packages of HPLIP for F10. After that downloaded hplip-3.9.4b.run directly from the site of HP and run it:

        $ cd ~/Desktop
Desktop $ cd ~/Download
Download$ sh hplip-3.9.4b.run

The monster of the printers under Linux proved to be a binary driver plug-in. For further details write <binary driver plug-in> in Google and look at the results.
Comment 14 Tim Waugh 2009-07-13 09:15:16 EDT
I'm going to mark this as a duplicate of bug #500480, as basically the problem boils down to 'can't get HP LJ P1005 to work'.

Yes, a binary plug-in is required for hplip to drive this printer.  If you want a printer that can be driven by free software alone, you need to choose another printer. :-(
