//remove cups package from your cd.
during rpm installation you must be in the directory where your installing rpm is placed.. in this case you should be in your media/cdrom/rpms(or similar) directory.
Now if it complains for dependencies.. like libblabaa=> required by cups-x.y...
first note down the dps and see if the older versions are installed, with
rpm -q lib_blabala..(remember lib_blabla is an example
if present first delete them with
rpm -e lib_blabla and all those old dependents...
once done, now install all packages together at once..
rpm -iUvh cups lib_blabla foo bar etc
give a space inbetween all package name and if all goes well rpm will install your all packages without any error..
now type the below code in your netbrowser
and configure your printer..
at this moment i have to sometimes start
service cups stop
service cups start
manually ... when my printer gets stuck ..
