Hi,

I have built a thin client of SLED11sp3 in SuSEstudio. I now find that cups is not installed.
So I downloaded cups, cups-autoconfig, cups-backend, cups-drivers and tried to install cups.
It failed various dependencies like, foomatic-filters, a2ps and wdiff. I downloaded and installed these files.
The system now complains that /usr/bin/pdftops and pdftools_any is required.
These two files are not on the SLED11sp3 disk .... Any ideas how to proceed?

Regards
John

Why don't you add CUPS in SUSE Studio? It would resolve the needed dependencies automatically.

I could do that, but then all the other configs and lockdown would need to be re-done

Those files appear to come from the 'poppler-tools' RPM. Individual
system files are not ever contained on the media, but are in packages.
Have you checked this package? I assume it is on the media since I see it
on SLES installs and no SLED install would work without the package being
there somewhere... probably named poppler-tools-blahblahblah.rpm

Good luck.

Hey ab,

I dropped the poppler-tools-blahblahblah.rpm onto the thin client. Ran the RPM for poppler-tools and cups has installed an is up and running.
Now all is good again. I will give you a "star". Shot for the help.

I'm glad to hear it, and especially thank-you for posting back your
results. I should have included them but the commands to figure this out
from a system with the files installed:

Code:
--------------------
rpm -qf /usr/bin/pdftops
--------------------

and from any system regardless of installed stuff as long as repositories
exist to install media:

Code:
--------------------
zypper wp /usr/bin/pdftops
--------------------

Good luck.
