Well that is just what I had to do when I bought my Brother MFC-J6910DW
printer and tried to install it on RHEL/Centos Linux.

installs my "white hack" on your computer.
Whitehacks come in two forms:
whitehack_XXX - unenabled, good for initial review
whitehack_XXX-enabled - install enabled, good for batch patch installs
