My HP LaserJet 1012 (USB) printer stopped.
Output from the printer is a single sheet of paper with
"Unsupported Personality: PCL".

Started YaST2's Printer Configuration Tool.

The Initializing Printer Configuration is at the Check database of printers

A small window with the message:
"The list of installed drivers has changed."
"Building database of drivers..."
Shows 4% and has been that way for at least 45 minutes.

I'll wait a couple of hours. The program y2base is using 80-99% of the
CPU with little signs of progress

If anyone can give me a clue as to what to do next
Whilst not the next thing to do to get printing working, looking at linux printing at the link of it says your printer is mostly supported ie not full and has some notes you may want to read.
