Updated foomatic packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
Foomatic is a comprehensive, spooler-independent database of printers, printer drivers, and driver descriptions. The package also includes spooler-independent command line interfaces to manipulate queues and to print files and manipulate print jobs. foomatic-rip is a print filter written in C.

Bug Fixes

The foomatic package could not be rebuilt due to the RPM package spec file having incorrect locations for Perl files. The installation locations have been fixed and the package can now be rebuilt.
Under certain circumstances, the foomatic-rip CUPS filter could fail, causing print jobs to pass raw data to the printer without being correctly filtered. This was caused by a missing parameter to a logging function. This programming error has been corrected and foomatic-rip now behaves correctly in the described scenario.
Users of foomatic are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
