Slackware ChangeLog: September 23rd

Here is the latest update to the Slackware-current changelog:

Sat Sep 23 03:45:30 CDT 2006
a/sysvinit-2.84-i486-68.tgz: In rc.M, start rc.hplip if found. Fix the path
to /sbin/initscript shown in init.8. Thanks to Robby Workman.
xap/sane-1.0.18-i486-3.tgz: Added HPLIP backend (hpaio) to dll.conf.
testing/packages/cups-1.2.4/cups-1.2.4-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to cups-1.2.4.
The web site says that more problems were fixed. I would still approach
this one cautiously, though I’m sure it (or its descendent) will be used
in Slackware 11.1. Unless you have a reason to need this now, I’d wait.
testing/packages/hplip-1.6.9-i486-1.tgz: Added hplip-1.6.9, a complete print,
scan, and fax system for HP devices. This isn’t being merged into the AP
series as a replacement for hpijs solely because I’d like to see it get more
testing first. It is working perfectly here. Thanks to Robby Workman for
doing the vast majority of the work on this package. šŸ™‚
testing/packages/gutenprint-5.0.0-i486-2.tgz: Don’t overwrite GIMP’s “print”
plugin — instead install the plugin as “gutenprint”.
Thanks again to Stefano Vesa.
