@niiler, @rxMokka, @oMasta
or any hp printer user.

Would like help testing a fix.  There is a new hplip-3.11.10-i586-5vl70 in the gslapt repositories.


Hey stretchedthin,

It works like a charm.  Everything's good on this end of things.  Thanks for the extra effort!

Cheers,

...

PS, there is a 64bit version in the repositories as well.

Confirmed good for HP 2575v on 64 and 32bit.

I just installed rc3.4 in virtualbox and all went well except for some weirdness with mouse control during the install. I'm using the vbox install right now and everything works quite well, including said mouse. All in all this looks to be a sweet release... I just wish I could put this on my hardware   :-\

What's the hold back, something in the distribution not working.

stretchedthin, I tried your printing suggestion (mostly):


Quote
I followed the instructions in your November 7 1:16 pm email (above) and it installed fine.  I then removed Vector's hplip 3.11.7 and installed hplip 3.11.10 from the repository and got the error "hplip: Depends: avahi >= 0.6.30."    Most likely this is because I haven't updated to the latest VL 7 beta.  ... I have reinstalled hhplip 3.11.7. 


but it didn't work, for me, using this older version of VL7 (see signature below).  The problem, since VL6, has been this:  I use a laptop (see signature below).  I have to connect to my HP Laserjet 4mplus via the usb port.  Cups doesn't see the printer.  I suppose if I knew the ppd and all that I could get past this point.  But in VL6, I didn't have to do anything other than ask cups to find a new printer and cups came up with an option to select usb.  I would select that option, and continue, which eventually brought me to a page with all sorts of printers.  I would find the hp section, scroll down to my printer and install.  I can't do that and have never been able to do it.  As I put VL7 on this new laptop some months back, I can't really say whether its a samsung problem or a cups problem or a VL problem.  I just know it doesn't see the printer.  If I had a parallel port, I am sure it would work.

But thanks much for your and Vector's efforts.

I strongly suspect that it is something different in cups that is causing my problem.

@sledgehammer
as root in a terminal could you...
lsmod | grep usblp

If you don't see it listed as a module try this (also as root)...
modprobe usblp

Then go into System>>Printing and see if you still can't see your computers usb connection listed.

During attempted install of rc 3.4, never actually got to the installer.  Boot froze at "attempting to unpack rootfs as initramfs" or something like that.  Tried several times with same result.  VL Light 6.0 currently installed on same machine. Likely my system is the culprit but figured I'd post.

my machine: AMD Sempron 2600+, 128mb ram (32 carved off for a integrated video card I can't seem to disable) 80gb ide hd, dvd burner of unknown speed, nvidia graphics.

@brokendodge
Good to see you back.  First though is bad burn, but before you commit to reburning 3.4 I think Vector will be announcing 4.4 shortly.

I just did some testing in VirtualBox on several ram amounts. Seems that inorder to decompress the initramfs, you will need 224MB of free ram. To use 32MB of video ram you would need 256MB of total system ram. This is most likely due to the overhead of decompressing xz/lzma.


I wonder if it is possible to exclude usage of the init.xz at the boot prompt?
