I'm having a tricky problem that I experienced before. 
"sane-find-scanner" finds the scanner, but xsane reports: "no devices 
found". I don't know how I got it working last time except that it 
started working after messing with "SANE_DEBUG_EPSON=255" - first as 
root, then as user. I'm running RH 8.0 and the problems restarted after 
a "up2date", where sane-backend-devel was updated.

The only other clue if from "/var/log/messages": "modprobe: modprobe: 
Can't locate module char-major-81" - don't know if its relevant.

Any help for a newbie will bee appriciated.

Regards Torben
