Now I'm confused as to what version of whose packages you're using.
First you say "Using Iscan version Epkowa driver from AVASYA", now
it's "Installation was from SUSE RPM".

AVASYS doesn't distribute 64-bit RPMs (yet) nor do the iscan-2.10.0
sources include support for it.  The distribution you select on the
AVASYS download page does not affect the iscan RPM packages in any

I had a look at:


but that lists 2.10.0 as the latest version for the SUSE packages.

Make sure you mention the _exact_ file names and URLs you downloaded
each file from.  You may even want to include MD5 checksums.

Hope this helps,
