Sane 1.0.20, Mandriva 2010.0 (kernel

I have a Visioneer OneTouch 7100 USB scanner. According to  the Sane 
Compatibility list  this scanner is supported. I can't get it to work. I 
can't even get XScanimage to open. It just aborts.

The scanner is recognized by the usb file system:

Bus 005 Device 011: ID 04a7:0229 Visioneer OneTouch 7100

Sane-find-scanner sees it as well:

# sane-find-scanner

   # sane-find-scanner will now attempt to detect your scanner. If the
   # result is different from what you expected, first make sure your
   # scanner is powered up and properly connected to your computer.

   # No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make 
sure that
   # you have loaded a kernel SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.

   # Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be 
supported by
   # SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.

   # Not checking for parallel port scanners.

   # Most Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary 
   # can't be detected by this program.

But I don't see a module loading up with it.

Looks like I need to load libsane-genesys.so. Trouble is, whenever I try 
that my system claims it can't find libsane_genesys.so.

There are modules there:

# ll libsane-genesys.so*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root     25 2010-07-05 08:42 libsane-genesys.so -> 
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root     25 2010-04-26 17:17 libsane-genesys.so.1 -> 
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 225144 2010-04-26 09:59 libsane-genesys.so.1.0.20*

But the modprobe looks like this:

# modprobe /usr/lib/sane/libsane-genesys.so.1.0.20
FATAL: Module /usr/lib/sane/libsane_genesys.so.1.0.20 not found.

It's the same story with both soft links to libsane-genesys.so.1.0.20.

Why am I chasing my tail on this thing? What am I missing?

When I try to set the scanner up in MCC's scanner config applet, it 
claims that the 7100 isn't supported!

Any help is appreciated.
