Have scanned (ha ha) it and the only thing that seems out of order is
scsiinfo /dev/sg2 returns no info
raphael:/u/martin# scsiinfo -e /dev/sg2
Unable to read Read-Write Error Recovery Page 01h
Beginning to suspect a SCSI problem. I'll try the scanner on another
machine when I get a chance.
> chmod 666 /dev/sg2
Initially it was:
[martin@raphael martin]$ ls -la /dev/sg2
crw------- 1 root root 21, 2 Mar 15 2002 /dev/sg2
I originally performed all the attempts to scan as root so that
permissions wouldn't be a problem. After chmod 666 I get identical
results to the ones originally quoted.
