Uncle Bob,

If you'd really like to use the hplip package rather than going for
alternative ways, I suggest you rebuild it from the Fedora srpm.  It
is much better than installing from a tarball.  Just found that
hplip-2.7.12-4 for fc8 rebuilds without difficulties.  I can offer the
stuff I built for CentOS-5 if you like.
