The QA team on Mageia is currently rather small, and we need
some people who have hp printers to help testing an update
to the hplip package.

The bug report for the update is

To install the update, run drakrpm-edit-media (or MCC/Software
Management/Configure media sources for install and update),
and enable the "Core Updates Testing" repository.

Then run "urpmi hplip".

Once it's installed, use drakrpm-edit-media or mcc to disable
the "Core Updates Testing" repository.

Note: If mgaapplet detects updates available, while the Testing
repository is enabled, do not use it to install updates. :-)

Then restart cups "service cups restart", and see if the printer
is working.

After that, either add an entry to the bug report, or reply to
this post, and I'll add the info to the bug report.

Please include whether or not it works, and what system you're
using (32 or 64 bit, and type of printer).

We are mainly interested in cases where hplip is currently
working, to ensure this update doesn't create any new problems.

Regards, Dave Hodgins
