Question PIDORA CUPS all set up | Having issue with Dell Driver architecture compatability


Hello LQ Community,

With some help from contributors in the post below I have got CUPS up and running with the admin web gui functioning as well.

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...42#post5243042

To cut a long story short my aim is to get AIRPRINT working on a RASPBERRY PI running PIDORA (2014 release) so far through trying the same on RASPBIAN I found that the driver installation for my Dell 2150 CDN was not working even when using RPMCPIO to split out the contents of the package to install manually.

I then felt an RPM would probably install more smoothly on a REDHAT type OS so I have tried to get it working using PIDORA just to find that the ARM PIDORA OS Version cannot install the RPM as it is I686 software.

Is there any way to get this installed? For debian operating systems I know there is something like the IA32-libs package is there a way of getting this I686 Dell driver to run on RASPBERRY PI running PIDORA?

In order to have the software run you will have to find a version compiled for the Pi. The x86 versions won't work.
ia32-libs was an old implementation of what is now generally referred to as multilib which is used to allow the running of 32 bit x86 applications on the AMD64 (also referred to as x86 64) architecture and works because the new FS bit architecture is and extension of the old 32 bit so is completely backwards compatible. The ARM CPU in the Pi is not derived from the x86 architecture and has no compatibility at all.

I think this is a bit of a non-starter; I'll look for ARM specific implementation of the driver though I do not hold high hopes of finding one.

I am going to mark this as solution and consider the project scrapped until I can stretch to buying an X86 or AMD64 net top or build my own mini-itx type box.

Thank you for your advice.


Tom

Are there any printer drivers available? This Dell supports PCL6 so a HP PCL6 color driver should work with maybe some tweaking of the PPD file.
