At step 2: Download and install the HP printing software
When I type 'make', it comes with the following error message
I finally had success with fedora core 4 and hplip 0.9.7+patched.
Be sure to get 0.9.7 and a patch (both from download site). extract and cd into the source,
patch -p0 < patchfile (or was that -p1?)
make clean; make; make install
I found make clean is a necessary step since some shared object files don't get generated.
One other thing to watch: /etc/init.d/hplip script does not start hpssd properly due to selinux.
Option 1: run hpssd manually from command line:
Option 2: change hplip security type:
chcon -t bin_t /etc/init.d/hplip
I still can't make the script work during boot. Anyone finds a solution, please post. Something to do with selinux I guess.
Otherwise, I'm happy with network scan, print, and service info.
