I have a Cannon Lide 35 scanner and I am trying to make it work under
linux. I know that the scanner is not yet supported. I have downloaded
latest CVS snapshot of the experimental backend Genesys, compiled it
according to the instructions and run. The sane-find-scanner gives me:

found USB scanner (vendor=0x04a9 [Canon], product=0x2213 [CanoScan],
chip=GL841) at libusb:004:003
  # Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be
supported by
  # SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.

Note that the libusb:00x:00y changes. When I try scanimage I get:

[stevko@stevko bin]$ scanimage -d genesys
[genesys] WARNING: Your scanner is not fully supported or at least
[genesys]          had only limited testing. Please be careful and
[genesys]          report any failure/success to
[genesys]          henning@meier-geinitz.de. Please provide as many
[genesys]          details as possible, e.g. the exact name of your
[genesys]          scanner and what does (not) work.
scanimage: open of device genesys failed: Error during device I/O

and in the /var/log/messages I have:

May  3 22:02:48 stevko kernel: usb 4-1: scanimage timed out on ep2out
May  3 22:02:48 stevko kernel: usb 4-1: usbfs: USBDEVFS_BULK failed ep
0x2 len 6 ret -110

What do you think should be wrong with my system? Is there someting I
have to configure/check? What more information I should provide or what
I should try to change in sources and see what happens?

Thanks for any hints and pointers,

Best regards,
