The kernel is: kernel-multimedia-2.6.14-0.mm.6mdk
The distro is: Mandriva 2006
Mandriva was installed with kernel-2.6.12-mdk

#scanimage -L produces:

No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different,
check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the
sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation
which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).

If I reboot on the 2.6.12 kernels xsane works perfectly.
