[PC-BSD Testing] Beta1 testing problems

The 96.43 Nvidia driver has been updated to 96.43.20 to include support for
latest X11. It is included in Ubuntu 11.10 alpha 3 so may be ported to BSD
soon as an alternative to the current version in the PC-BSD 9 beta1 install

Does the HPLIP install binary (PBI) have the scanner=yes option set, as this
is set to =no in the standard freebsd pkg I think. I have to compile from
ports to get an HP all in one to scan, which takes about 3 hours at 2mbps

regards to all
