    1                 Installing and Using Omni RPM Packages
    2                 --------------------------------------
    3 
    4 The following document will explain how to use the Omni Printer Device
    5 driver RPM packages.
    6 
    7 Due to the need to provide a simpler way to install and use the Omni
    8 Printer Driver model on a system, we have developed a way to install just
    9 the manufacturer of choice libraries on a system.  You will no longer
   10 need to build the entire Omni package.
   11 
   12 For the list of printers supported by the manufacturer, by model, please
   13 refer to the Omni.readme.1st on our website.
   14 
   15 Finding an RPM
   16 --------------
   17 
   18 There are many places where RPMs can be found.  First, look on the RedHat
   19 CDs under RedHat/RPMS.  Second, look the omni website at
   20 http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=18713 .  Third, look
   21 at the RPM search site at http://www.rpmfind.net/ .
   22 
   23 If you have previously installed RedHat's RHSA-2001:138-10 errata
   24 -----------------------------------------------------------------
   25 
   26 You may have already installed RedHat's RHSA-2001:138-10 errata at:
   27    http://www.redhat.com/support/errata/RHSA-2001-138.html
   28 
   29    rpm -Uvh foomatic-1.1-0.20011218.3.i386.rpm
   30             ghostscript-6.51-16.i386.rpm
   31             Omni-0.5.0-4.i386.rpm
   32             Omni-foomatic-0.5.0-4.i386.rpm
   33             printconf-0.3.61-3.i386.rpm
   34             printconf-gui-0.3.61-3.i386.rpm
