They are quite basic instructions on the old wiki, the new improved wiki 
is being worked on now.

In short, you need to be able to update from the Core Updates Testing 
media which is not generally desirable so is disabled by default. To be 
able to select Core Updates Testing as an update media you need to use 
"expert" mode.

To do so, as root, use: drakrpm-edit-media --expert

You can then place a tick in the Updates and Enable columns for Core 
Updates Testing.

You might get an error to do with a new msec/sectool at the moment when 
you go to update, you can safely ignore it.  Don't update with 
everything from testing, just update the relevant hplip packages it offers.

When you have updated them, remember to disable the Core Updates Testing 

Hope that helps!
