Feature #307719, revision 4
Title: hplip-hpcups and assoicated packages

openSUSE-11.3: Unconfirmed
Priority
Requester: Desirable

Requested by: Kirk Kimmel (omf)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org

Description:
One thing I have never understood is this hplip-hpcups package. If I
uninstall this package, hplip-hpijs is automatically marked for
install. If I uncheck that package as well and Accept the changes via
YaST2 Software Management these packages are removed.
However the next time I start Software Management hplip-hpijs is
checked to be installed again. The only way to stop this behavior is to
mark both packages as Taboo.
Shouldn't I be able to remove packages that are not needed without
having to jump through hoops to make sure they do not get installed
again.
 
Currently running OpenSUSE 11.2 Milestone 6.

I like to remove most of the cups packages from workstations that do
not need printer access in order to lower the amount of security
updates I have to apply later.

+ See http://en.opensuse.org/SDB:How_to_set-up_a_HP_printer which reads:
+ "Make sure that the packages which provide the HPLIP software come from
+ one same repository (i.e. do not mix packages from PackMan with those
+ from openSUSE) ... openSUSE provides HPLIP in the packages hplip and
+ hplip-hpijs but PackMan provides HPLIP in the packages hplip and hplip-
+ hpcups" HPLIP does not work if the openSUSE packages hplip and hplip-
+ hpijs are installed together with a leftover PackMan package hplip-
+ hpcups. See https://bugzilla.novell.comshow_bug.cgi?id=515005#c17
+ For openSUSE 11.4 I added "Obsoletes: hplip-hpcups" in our hplip-hpijs
+ package to avoid this conflict.
