- For sane-1.0.2 (and later versions) the path to the xsane libs MUST NOT be listed
My ld.so.conf: (Redhat 6.1)

sane-find-scanner: found SCSI scanner "SCANNER 1.11" at device /dev/sg0
sane-find-scanner: found SCSI scanner "SCANNER 1.11" at device /dev/sga

Hmm. I did read this before I made the notes above. Is your SCSI
connection OK? Termination etc.?
