Yes, I got this lines, but I also got a line saying that is was an error
i /etc/hosts.allow. I have noe fixed that, and the error messages does not
longer appear in /var/log/messages. Byt I stil dont get the scanner to work.

I have tryed both localhost and barcelona at the same time and seperatly in
net.conf. Always with the same result when trying [root@barcelona etc]#
device `microtek:/dev/sge' is a Microtek ScanMaker E3 flatbed scanner
device `microtek:/dev/sg4' is a Microtek ScanMaker E3 flatbed scanner

I cant seam to find any log that has the name syslog, but i /var/log I find
messages. This file apears to be a syslog file.
When trying scanimage -L I get the line "barcelona modprobe: modprobe:
Can't locate module char-major-81" in that log.

Then it works!
