Description Juan Manuel Rodriguez 2010-05-27 23:35:30 UTC
Description of problem:
After several hours attempting to set up a network printer, I decided to recompile the hplip driver from upstream. 

Upon following instructions, I found this:

I noticed I didn't have libcrypto, installed it, and it all magically worked. Now I want my 2 hours back :-/

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Remove libssh (Which provides libcrypto)
2. Attempt to set up a jetdirect printer (Try the hp-gui, for instance)
3. Fail
4. Install libssh
5. Scan and Print wirelessly
I think adding "Requires: libssh" should be enough. Failing that, splitting libcrypto out of libssh, and adding libcrypto as a requires could be an option.

I'm not sure if I'm filing the bug on the correct component, but its definitely an issue with "JetDirect" printers.

The hplip package already requires libcrypto.

[tim@localhost ~]$ rpm -q --requires hplip | grep crypto  
[tim@localhost ~]$ rpm -q --whatprovides ''
[tim@localhost ~]$ rpm --test -e openssl 2>&1 | grep hplip is needed by (installed) hplip-libs-3.10.2-11.fc13.x86_64 is needed by (installed) hplip-3.10.2-11.fc13.x86_64

And libssh doesn't provide libcrypto:

[tim@localhost ~]$ repoquery -ql libssh | grep '\.so\.'

And libssh is not referenced in the source code of hplip anywhere.

So can you please expand in more detail on exactly how you're printing and how it fails please?  Also, please try removing libssh and verifying that it breaks things again.

Hmm, you're right about that. 

I removed libssh and could still print. It was a weird coincidence, I guess?

I was running the hp gui manager, and as soon as I installed libssh, the printers showed up. (I had copypasted my printer.conf from another F-13 laptop). 

Due to lack of stacktrace or anything usable, I guess you should mark this bug as bogus? 

Leave it up a few more days though, I'll try replicating using a virtual machine.

I'll try to pay *more* attention on what I'm doing to replicate.

Closing; please re-open if you take another look at this and find how to reproduce it.
