[sane-devel] Epson Perfection 1650 USB on Solaris

My name is Kip Iles (http://kiplandiles.com) and I am just getting into 
working with SANE on the Solaris 8 platform (currently, on a Ultra 10 but 
finally on a Blade server). I am trying to get an Epson Perfection 1650 USB, 
connected to a USB port on a SunRay to work and have not had any success. I 
cant even get the PNM driver to work or be recognized as a valid device so I 
am not even sure is SANE is truly operational.

I have tried the sane-1.0.6 + xsane-0.82 binary and also compiled the latest 
and greatest sane-1.0.8 + xsane-0.86 source to no avail.

I am a bit confused about USB support for Solaris 8 in SANE and was hoping 
that someone may have already experimented on this front. Is SCSI the only 
supported interface for SANE on Solaris at this time and if so, what can I 
do to help fix that; libusb or javax.usb perhaps? Does USB support need to 
be in the kernel already or might I be able to fake it by just including USB 
and scanner support without actually having any real USB devices on the 

Thanks in advance
