>have tried to link up to HPLIP, but there are NO entries for relationships with Slackware, only the other major Distros like Debian, RedHat, Ubuntu, etc....
>i have run hp-check -ldebug, locally with Konsole
to try and see why my HP OfficeJet 6500 will not join up with my linux box on the network,
i was told that the LSB dependancy was missing,
>upon looking for it at www.slacky.eu
i cannot find it there
am i looking at this wrong,
i think that by finding and downloading and running installpkg on the .tar.gz that will show for 'LSB' dependancy (install_initd) ....that that will be the missing piece to getting my printer "on-line".
i have already opened the appropriate Ports on the router and changed the IP address in the software on the HP printer to accomodate the IP range on the Belkin router.
i run Slackware 12.0
kernel - 2.6.21
KDE desktop and XWindows
thanks a million and "it's Great to be back"
