We don't currently have a good solution for RHEL5 64 bit systems. We are hoping to implement making the 64 bit RHEL 5 binary for HPLIP in the future although I don't have any ETA on when this is going to happen.

The automatic installer wont work on RHEL 5. However, in theory if you can install the RHEL 5 32 bit library's then the 32 bit HPLIP package might work on the 64 bit system. I've been looking for some basic instructions on how to do this on RHEL and haven't come up with anything that I'd feel comfortable pointing you at.

If you do find a solution I'd great appreciate any feedback as this will help other RHEL 5 64 bit users. Which there are several of.

Sorry for the inconvenience and we appreciate your support for HPLIP.

I have the same problem. But I don't think you need the 32-bit gcc. Usually, you just make a symbolic link to the 64 bit libs, "disguised with the 32-bit names.

I've looked through the script to find the libs that are called, but it's not easy to find them. Can you just put the list here? Then I can quickly make the sympbolic links and try it.

Can you help with this problem?
