oss 11.2, bug in hplip

Moby-2
It appears that hplip-3.9.8-3.4.1.i586 that installs with openSuse is
missing a file called models.dat.  Running hp-setup shows an error
stating "error: Unable to locate models.dat file" and indeed there is no
modesl.dat included in the rpm.  Back-reving hplip (thanks to jsmeix for
his repo!) seems to fix the issue.  Is anyone seeing this as well?
Thanks in advance for any help.

Search for the package hplip-hpcups and remove it.

The models.dat file and all what is needed for plain printing
was moved since openSUSE 11.2 to the hplip-hpijs sub package, see
http://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=546856

Accordingly the openSUSE 11.2 hplip-3.9.8-... RPM requires
its exact matching version-release hplip-hpijs sub package.
Check what on your system
   rpm -q --requires hplip | grep hpijs
results. If you have hplip from openSUSE there must be a line
   hplip-hpijs = 3.9.8-...
in its output.

In your case it seems the exact matching hplip-hpijs sub package
is not installed so that it should help when you re-install
both hplip and hplip-hpijs from openSUSE.

If in your case a package hplip-hpcups is installed,
it indicates that you have a mixed-up HPLIP installation
with HPLIP packages from Packman (hplip-hpcups)
and HPLIP packages from openSUSE (hplip), see
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=515005

Many thanks - that was it.  I deleted my current packages, installed the
ones from repo-oss, and put a zypper lock so those packages will only be
updated from repo-oss.
Thanks a gain.

'Been there often enough myself. SOME - clean - installs have gone well,
but
others not so well. Multimedia is still a pain in the butt with Kaffeine
not working.
This is ALL stuff that SHOULDN'T have problems. HP SHOULD be working with
community code writers to produce VERY good drivers and tools. There's NO
excuse for that not happening!
