Yes, it was with hplip 3.11.3a. It just seemed like something you should 
look into. I had similar results with Mandriva 2010.2 and hplip 3.11.5. 
Did you happen to run hp-check with the older hplip before the update? 
Perhaps these unfound dependencies are unique to my machine somehow.

My one and only Mageia install is being used as my production install, 
and I'd rather not take the chance of messing it up with packages from 
Cauldron. I probably wouldn't know how to get it back from a disaster 
without a complete reinstall - not a pleasant prospect.

I'm *WAY* out of my depth when participating in these discussions. I 
appreciate your patience with me.
