Package name printer-drivers
Date November 6th, 2002
Advisory ID MDKA-2002:015-1
Affected versions 9.0
Synopsis Updated printer-drivers packages fix various printing issues

Problem Description

New printing-related packages are available that offer many printing
enhancements over those drivers provided with Mandrake Linux 9.0. Some
improvements include a new driver for Lexmark Z11, a number of updated
ghostscript drivers, a new version of HPIJS, a newer GIMP-Print which
provides much better quality for most Epson Stylus printers, and many
new printer drivers as well.

This new package also changes "-dSAFER" to "-dPARANOIDSAFER" in the
Ghostscript command lines in all Foomatic files, which prevents
postscript code from being able to read arbitrary files.


The previous updates built ghostscript without the "cups" driver.
That has been corrected in these new packages.

To upgrade automatically, use MandrivaUpdate.


Please verify the update prior to upgrading to ensure the integrity of the downloaded package. You can do this with the command :

                rpm --checksig package.rpm

You can get the GPG public key of the Mandriva Security Team to verify the GPG signature of each RPM.

If you use MandrivaUpdate, the verification of md5 checksum and GPG signature is performed automatically for you.
