[sane-devel] re:re: Problem with Acer 640UT, worked before
Sat, 20 Jul 2002 04:32:20 -0700 (PDT)
I was going to run scanimage in gdb, but to do that I thought I should compile it with debug info. I compiled it, and replaced the mandrake cooker 1.0.8 binaries, and ... it worked. Dont know why, or why the mandrake binaries did not work for me, but now it is ok!

That's o.k. - the 640 models are treated as 620 models, since they only
differ in some smaller details.

I'll have to look into this in more detail. Can you run scanimage in gdb and
find out where exactly the crash occurs?
For the time being you could also try to remove the line
from snapscan.conf. Your scanner should be autodetected.
