  • Xerox WorkCentre 6015 [solved]
    highwaystar81 on Sat, 18 Oct 2014 07:52:36 +0000

    Hello Everyone,

    I've just bought a Xerox WorkCentre 6015B Printer. But I cannot manage to make it work with OpenMandriva (I have version 2014.1).
    I downloaded the rpm package here =>

    The problem is that when I try to install this package, I get this error message (I translate from french):

    Some of the packages cannot be installed (because cups-libs [>=1.1.17] is not satisfied)
    Continue installation anyway

    I click yes and get another error message
    While some packages may have been installed, there were failures.
    Some Packages cannot be installed :
    Xerox-WorkCentre-6015B_6015N_6015NI-1.0-28.i586 (because cups-libs[>= 1.1.17] is not satisfied).

    I am looking for this cups-libs package but I cannot find it for OpenMandriva. I found for other distributions such as Fedora or OpenSUSE but it doesn't work.

    Do you have any idea how to solve this problem ?

    I really thank you for your help.

    On 2014.1, I cannot get the mariadb service to start. When I try to start mysqld, I get status code of 1.
    The my.cnf files provided look very sketchy compared to MySql cnf file on a server running MySQL.
