I have compiled and install the splix drivers applying the attached
patch.  The patch works only if you do not need the driver to display
messages in French, German, or Italian.  Thus, the attached patch is a
very crude workaround.  From what I am able to determine, ppdpo
translates messages from one language (here English) to another.  I
will file a request for feature  against cups-devel in bugzilla for
ppdpo to be included in future releases.

To apply the patch:

1) copy the patch to the splix source directory
2) cd to the splix source directory
2) $ patch -p1 < splix-1.0.1-1-makefile.patch
3) $ make
4) as root run "make install"
5) restart cups
6) configure the ML-2510 via CUPS selecting the ML-2150, 1.0 en driver

(After installing, you may need to reset the context for rastertospl2.
 To do so issue the following command as root "restorecon -v

The splix drivers work on FC7 and FC6 with the ML-2510 shared on a
Windows machine.  I cannot guarantee the drivers work when the ML-2510
connected via USB.
