HPLIP And "slackpkg blacklist" Command


I am using Slackware 14.1, 64-bit.

I just installed HPLIP v. 3.14.10 (Slackware's DVD came with v. 3.13.10). Everything went fine, except that every time that I run:
Code:
# slackpkg upgrade-all
I am presented with the opportunity to re-install HPLIP 3.13.10.

So I issued the following command:
Code:
# slackpkg blacklist hplip-3.13.10-x86_64-1
but a window opens up offering the opportunity to blacklist:
Quote:
hplip
I don't want to blacklist the whole HPLIP; I just want to blacklist v. 3.13.10.

Any suggestions?

Try editing the /etc/slackpkg/blacklist file directly.

I'm not sure that will work, because I'm not sure that blacklist looks at version numbers, but it's worth a shot.

According to the instructions in /etc/slackpkg/blacklist, one cannot blacklist a package version. Only the package itself can be blacklisted.

So, I would not be able to enter:

It was a shot in the dark.

Sorry, and thanks for the information.
