I just loaded the following:
[root@msp mark]# rpm -qa |grep "sane"
Here are the installed modules:
[root@msp mark]# lsmod

An interesting thing is happening. When I start xsane, it says something
like "xsane: no devices available." Just for grins I did a:
[root@msp mark]# sane-find-scanner
# Note that sane-find-scanner will find any scanner that is connected
# to a SCSI bus. It will even find scanners that are not supported
# at all by SANE. It won't find a scanner that is connected to a
# parallel, USB or other non-SCSI port.
sane-find-scanner: found processor "HP C7670A 3945" at device /dev/sg0
sane-find-scanner: found processor "HP C7670A 3945" at device /dev/sga
It took almost a full minute to come back with the above 2 lines. I am also
wondering why it is listed twice.
Then I executed xsane again and it gave me the "xsane: no devices
available" ONCE. The second time I executed xsane it started just fine. It
is almost like I have to kick it to get it started. Can anyone tell me why?
I am running LM8.0 (2.4.7 kernel) 1.4mhz Intell Pentium 4 with 512 mb ram.
My scanner is a HP ScanJet 6300C.
I love xsane. I just want it to come to life when I fire up the program.
