Hi Terry

The 'stuck at 4%' bug is know and has been discussed. Robert Lewis posted
this last Thursday....

"This has been discussed quite recently on this list and maybe seen in
the archives.
Of course with the volume of info. stuff is easily missed.
This has been fairly common. See Short answer: try these

rm /var/lib/YaST2/printers
rm /var/lib/YaST2/ppd_db.ycp

and then try again with Yast. This should rebuild the printer database
and allow you to get going again."

Worked for me. As for the other error, I'm afraid I can't help since I don't
have that hardware.
