Hello Henning,

Thank you for the help. FYI, I downloaded the sane-1.0.3-2.i386.rpm from 

I am quite happy to compile the source for my system (RH 7.1) but would 
prefer an rpm package. I have had a search but cannot find an rpm. It's 
quite possible I haven't searched correctly (the only package that turned 
up was the 1.0.3)but if you know where I can download the 1.0.5 package 
from I would be very grateful

Thank you again.
