Hello Henning,
            I got name of chipset its a GL646_HP.  total output for umax
astra 4100  of sane-find-scanner is =>
               found USB scanner (vendor=0x0461 [Primax],
product=0x038c    [USB
Scanner], chip=GL646_HP) at libusb:004:002
            One more thing i want to ask to develop a driver for this UMAX
Astra 4100 i think i need to add backend in sane-backends source package and
install it on RHEL to have it working fine. Is that right? and xsane will
then recognise this scanner.
           Please correct me.
