note: when i refers to source i mean for packagin, specifically the DSC files and how the binary-only files of sangsung are package to deb..

this for dapt to squeeze if necessary and possibility for lenny, due i still used a powered version of debian lenny and works very very better rather thant wheeze (that are very slower compared to)

Squeeze should not be a problem for driver versions "3.x".  Versions "4.x" might work.  "Driver2" versions will not work, and repackaging won't help.

Lenny may work with the version "3.x" drivers.

The "source" files are the Samsung files provided here: http://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/suld.html .  I just shuffle the files around and create packages, adding dependencies based on what I can work out from the binaries provided.  So repackaging probably isn't going to be useful to you.

If you are referring specifically to the scanner-server files, the packages are the source, because the files are python scripts.  So if you need to change the distribution format, you can just extract them out.  I have no idea if any will work with Squeeze or Lenny.

i have sussesfully used squeeze with both versions, 3.X and 4.X, with some exceptions, only using the cupsd interface, and locally canners, server works well with network or locally. the samsung interface or universal dont work (in some squeeze start but dont configure very well some printers)

i have not tested yet in lenny, but i think that some modifications on packages (postinst and prerm assumed some issues) and on python scripts (changin /usr/bin/env to /usr/bin/python2.5) i think almost all sould work!

another issues:

/usr/lib/libtiff.so.3* in lenny and squeeze are provided, and for wheeze its better a relink with older versions from debian snapshots , this can be made in ur apt configurator from package

/usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5* are provided by gcc 3.3 that are present in lenny, for squeeze, wheeze and sid, using snapshot are better, just commit to u'r repo the gcc 3.3 lasted from debian that only provided 4 packages

/usr/lib/libcups.so , this are not necesary, only just added depends to libcups2-dev, but must install also libcupsimage2-dev

/usr/lib/libqui.so* and /usr/lib/libqt-mt* only need for version 3.X of drivers for the configurator interface, can be used the deported packages from debian squeeze to wheeze and jesse

About sources:

i refers to the files to build the debian pcakges, the dsc file and the debian. directory.. i just can recreate it but its better use the provides by u and improvement the work, by made more avanced packages based on distro .. i want made supoport for olders distros and u can only work for newer with no made strange dependences provided by the samsung drivers...
