Description Ewoud Kohl van Wijngaarden 2005-11-13 08:55:36 UTC
in printing-howto.xml you write:
HPLIP Driver

The HPLIP Project embraces the hpijs driver and includes scanner support and
service tools for various multi-purpose peripherals. For printing support, you
must have the ppds USE flag enabled.

Code Listing 5.2: Installing the hplip drivers

# emerge hplip

When the emerge process has finished, the printer drivers will be available
through the CUPS web interface.

when I try that, I must first unmask it because it is masked ~x86, maybe you
should point it out to the user.

then when I pretend to merge it, I see an usb USE flag, I assume this is for usb
 printers, but it's default not set here so did I miss something or does every
user have to add it?

or we could just have hplip moved into stable
Comment 2 Mark Loeser (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-11-15 22:28:56 UTC
What version should we be looking to mark stable?

net-print/hplip-0.9.4 works on ppc without problems (since months...), but
net-print/hplip-0.9.5 gives errors.  See bug #107398.
Comment 4 Luis Medinas (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-11-19 12:22:34 UTC
i think lu_zero as fixed ppc bug... but this package can't go to stable because
it have a few bugs open. I was updating this package for a while but i can't
really maintain it because i don't use it. So it would be great if anyone steps
up to maintain it better than me.
Comment 5 Simon Stelling (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-11-23 13:21:40 UTC
wouldn't it be better to "fix" docs then? i'll remove amd64 for now, please
re-add us when these bugs are fixed and a new maintainer is found
Comment 6 Marcelo Goes (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-11-23 13:44:30 UTC
To be honest, I couldn't reproduce any of the problems with my printer. I'm
using hplip-0.9.5 with a HP PSC 1315 and all is fine and dandy.
Comment 7 Mark Loeser (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-12-07 22:58:42 UTC
Is there anyone maintaining this package to fix the bugs so we can mark this
stable?  If not, we should close this until someone steps up to do so.
Comment 8 Mark Loeser (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-12-14 20:03:39 UTC
When all open bugs for this have been resolved and its ready to go stable,
please readd us to CC.
Comment 9 Marcelo Goes (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-01-14 10:46:18 UTC
There are still hplip bugs pending, please remind us in the future to mark it stable.
Comment 10 Lars Weiler (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-01-21 06:40:49 UTC
I made hplip-0.9.7-r3 stable on ppc.  Builds fine and works without problems.
Comment 11 Marcelo Goes (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-01-26 09:22:02 UTC
Marked x86 stable.
