I have an Acer scanprisa 640UT USB scanner, and a mandrake8.0 setup (sane 1.0.4).

I do this:

Boot up computer and turn on scanner

mknod /dev/usbscanner c 180 48

acerfirm /dev/usbscanner u64v119.bin

The LED flashes and the scanner moves the light some, sounds very normal.

Then I start xsane, which looks for devices and then informs me that it found none.(I am root)

What have I missed ?
