    Default Trying to set my sytem back up


    I had posted in the install/boot forum about a problem I was having with
    openSUSE 10.3. After a ton of trying to get the system to work again, I
    ended up having to do a new install (I still had the cd from when I
    installed it the first time). I now have the system back, in a way.
    The problem is, when I try to install some stuff I had on the old setup
    (SMplayer, hplip, and some others), I get a list of dependencies that
    can't be resolved. it's mostly a bunch of lib* stuff, and I would think
    that Yast would be able to find that stuff!

    I can deal with that stuff for now, but need my printer at the VERY
    least.

    Michael
    (by the way, the printer is a HP Photosmart 7260, and the HP site
    directs me to the HPLIP site and driver. I had it working before the
    crash, as well as the other stuff I'm having problems installing now, so
    I KNOW it's possible.)

    Hi
    Just install the hplip driver via YaST and then run hp-setup as root
    user.

    Maybe I should have been a bit more specific. I AM using Yast, and I
    STILL get the list of unresolved dependencies. (My first post included
    getting the dependencies problem with hplip, just not that I was using
    Yast)

    Hi
    So since the rebuild have you updated? Are you installing the hplip off
    the install media? Is the update mirror your using complete?

    Uh, I need to apologize. The error seems to be that I hadn't actually
    added a repo I needed when I thought that I HAD. In short, my problem
    is resolved, and SOMEhow it was my fault. Nothing got messed up, but I
    made assumptions before double-checking. I also fear that I may have
    been a bit sarcastic in my earlier reply.

    I'm sure I'll need to ask more questions here sooner or later, but for
    now this is [SOLVED]
