Unfortunately I have had sent this only to Henning Meier-Geinitz, so
here it comes again - sorry Henning.

>sane-backends-1.0.18 is released.

Trying to compile, I get the following (?) errors:

epkowa.desc: Warning: Backend `epkowa': `EPSON' `LP-9800CFH' does not
have an interface
epkowa.desc: Warning: Backend `epkowa': `EPSON' `Stylus CX5700F' does
not have a status
epkowa.desc: Warning: Backend `epkowa': `EPSON' `Stylus CX5800F' does
not have a status
epkowa.desc: Warning: Backend `epkowa': 18 USB devices without :usbid

make[1]: Entering directory
Generating index for sane.ps...
make[1]: *** [sane.ind] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory
make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

And then it aborts :-(

My system is SuSE10.1 on an AMD64 bit,
scanner is an Epson perfection 2450Photo = GT9700 attached to the
firewire port.

When trying to install the 'epkowa' package, I am told to install sane
first, and doing that, sane aborts and tells me to uninstall the old
version before installing the new :'(
Or should I get hold of an 'not rpm'/installable version of the epkowa
package and install that?

Any other ideas ?

Or the simplest of them all - as far as I can see, the error comes from
the .../doc directory - how do I disable the docs?????
