[sane-devel] Question on SCSI-scanners

Dear listmembers,
prior to doing a "deep down" search on my own, here's a question someone might 
be able to answer  to me:

The move in openSUSE from "conventional" permission distribution to hal 
recently started caused issues with SCSI scanners.
By the help of the hal-developers I found a workaround that might require a 
certain extension to really work reliably.

Therefore I'd like to know whether there is a chance to find from the sources 
(i. e. a specific variable there) whether a scanner announces itself 
as "processor", as "scanner" or as something else. This depends on the 
scsi.type that can be found in the device's bios.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you very much,
take care

Dieter Jurzitza
