[sane-devel] 1.0.7 can't find Microtek X6EL
Fri, 8 Mar 2002 17:17:42 -0500 (EST)
I am running RedHat 7.2, which came originally with sane 1.0.5. My Microtek
X6EL was not detected by sane-find-scanner even though it shows up in
/proc/scsi/scsi. In light of the FAQ answer concerning sane 1.0.5 and scanners
that do not report a vendor string (which it does not do), I just upgraded to
the sane-backends and sane-frontends RPMS from RedHat's Rawhide, which purport
to be sane version 1.0.7, but no joy -- it still doesn't see the scanner.
cat /proc/scsi/scsi gives
Host: scsi0 Channel: 00 Id: 06 Lun: 00
Vendor: Model: scanner 636EL Rev: 1.20
Type: Scanner ANSI SCSI revision: 02
Host: scsi1 Channel: 00 Id: 00 Lun: 00
Vendor: IOMEGA Model: ZIPCD1024INT-A Rev: 1.1
Type: CD-ROM ANSI SCSI revision: 02
The IOMEGA is a CD burner and it is actually using the ide-scsi interface.
Those of us with ATAPI CD burners have no choice but to use this module.
The "real" SCSI-relevant modules I have loaded are
aic7xxx 136448 1
scsi_mod 109396 5 [sg sr_mod ide-scsi aic7xxx sd_mod]
I generated a log file from scanimage but it's not very interesting:
scanimage: no SANE devices found
Is this vendor-string bug still present, or am I doing something wrong? I have
corrected the permissions on /dev/sg0 (but it doesn't work even as root).
Sane definitely used to work quite well with this scanner, but I am not sure
I have tried it since I attached it to a newer computer with the CD burner.
Thanks very much.
