RedHat CUPS install not working...


I'm trying to install CUPS so that I can use my HP Deskjet 6122 with RedHat 8.0. First I needed to install the CUPS package, which was not installed by default. I used Package Management to try to install CUPS from the RedHat CD, but I got a dependency error, that it needed cups-libs-1.1.15 . I thought that this should be installed by default, but I found the package on the RedHat CD, and tried to install it. RedHat told me that this package was already installed.
I tried to remove the package with
rpm -e cups-libs
but I get errors that there are dependencies. So, I tried
rpm -e cups-libs --nodeps
and it told me that the package was not installed....

Any help on this one would be greatly appreciated...
I just want to print, is that too much to ask?!

Make sure you have apt insalled and try this (make sure you su to root):

apt-get install cups*


If you don't have apt installed look for it on your CD's or at www.rpmfind.com. Once it is installed run apt-get update and then run:

apt-get install cups*

apt is great for sorting out rpm dependency hell............

Good luck

Yes I have apt installed, but I can never connect... I think it is because I am behind a proxy here at school. Do you how to connect through a proxy?

Besides, I can't figure out why CUPS says it needs cups-libs-1.1.15, but RedHat says that package is installed...

Anymore suggestions would be great.

you could alway remove the offanding rpm and then re-add it, I have found in my fumbelings with linux that it sometimes works. It seems sometimes that some rpm's don't register themselves fully and therefore when trying to install others they arn't found. You could also try to run the rpm repair command but I can't remember what that is at the moment.

OK, good news and bad news.
First, I successfully installed CUPS by:
rpm -e --nodebs cups-libs
and then by installing the cups-libs RPM again. This time, CUPS found it, and it installed properly. Seconds after installing the two, RHN alerted me of updates in the packages, and I went ahead and updated the system with no problems.

I now am at the very last step of configuring my printer (HP Deskjet 6122), which is to run CUPS Printer Configuration. That package actually runs: "http://localhost:631/" however, when I run it, I get the following error page:


Quote:

While trying to retrieve the URL: http://localhost.bradley.edu:631/

The following error was encountered:

* Access Denied.
In other words, I think it is trying access something on the LAN (bradley.edu is the server) and not on my machine...

How do I fix this, and finally print something with my new printer?!

Thanks for the help.
