   Hi All,
    Anyone using AIX??

    I am trying to use sane on AIX 4.3.3 (RS/6000) but
to do this, sane requires generic scsi drivers:
http://fz.eryx.net/aix/gsc-1.1.tar.gz. I have built
this using gcc 3.2.1 and GNU make.

   However, `lsdev -Cc generic` returns -
gsc0 Available 10-60-00-1,0 Feral Software Generic
SCSI Release 1.1

   But, `./tstinq /dev/gsc0` returns - 
GSC_CMD: I/O error

   This results in `sane-find-scanner` returning -
# No SCSI scanners found.....

   Has anyone sucessfully run Sane or GSC on an AIX
4.3.3 system? AIX has no native scanner support and
IBM UK UNIX support team have not been helpful. Any
help would be appreciated.
