Maybe easiest thing is to do the following:
urpmi --buildrequires 
(You can also use another mirror if you prefer) This should install all 
required packages to get hplip to install.

The problem is, if i don't know WHY hplip does not work for you on Mageia,
this simply means i can't fix it. Simple as that. This is why i'm trying to 
help you
find out the cause of the problem.
