1. Topic:

New redhat-config-printer packages are available, fixing assorted bugs.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 9 - i386

3. Problem description:

The redhat-config-printer packages contain graphical and text-based printer
configuration tools.

A number of bugs have been found in these tools:

- - A problem with the 'browsed queues' feature of the graphical
configuration tool has been addressed.

- - Other fixes in this release involve the strict RFC 1179 compliance
setting, serial printers connected to ports on multi-port serial cards
(i.e. not onboard ports), some queue configurations not being upgraded
correctly, and SMB printing.

Additionally, PTAL (Peripheral Transport Abstraction Library) support has
been added, supporting devices accessible via the hpoj package.

Users of redhat-config-printer that are impacted by these issues should
install these updated packages.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade.  Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated.  Those RPMs which are
not installed but included in the list will not be updated.  Note that you
can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains the
desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via Red Hat Network.  Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates.  To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:


This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla for more info):

85099 - Unable to define serial printer correctly using printconf
85107 - Cannot select browsed queues
