My problem is that sane-find-scanner finds my scanner,

but scanimage -L doesn't.
I also don't get a clue where to look for solving this
I already read all kinds of manpages and
and googled for hours on this problem.

Curious is that with linux 2.4.28 and module scanner
everything works
just fine. But it is impractical to run mostly linux
2.6 and only for scanning
linux 2.4.

A bad sign is that with the knoppix cd the scanner
also only works 
on linux 2.4, not linux 2.6, which is called
'experimental' there.

Other usb devices work normally, e.g., the usb memory
stick within a digital
still camera.

I tried to read some sane source code, but it seems
impossible to find out
how and where scanimage tries to open devices. Sane
doesn't look that simple.
Curious is that I couldn't get any debug output from
as shown below.

I would be very greatful for any hints on this

Greetings, Roland
