Printing problem on FC13

Just wondered if there has been any progress on the printing problem
with Brother printers, specifically the HL-5070N? I've tried the
postscript driver, PCL, and actually, all the others, and it still
just prints only "Error" on the page.

I've tried IPP, TCP, and pretty much all the others, and it all
results in the same error.

This printer has worked fine for years with various other Linux
distro's, versions of ghostscript, samba, and printing daemons.

Ideas greatly appreciated!
