      Hi Steve

      I have seen both hpijs and hplip packages are available at:

      http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/optware/nslu2/cross/stable/

      As I understand from your post below we need them both to install
      all-in-one printers (with cups of course). Am I right?

      In that case, has anybody succeed in doing so?

      Thanks
      Oscar
