I can't get beyond this point in my installation and am hoping one of you
will be willing to lend a hand

I have installed libsane and all related packages using both yum and from
the sources as well, with the same result. Currently I've gone back to yum.
Here are the results I've got so far:

*sane-find-scanner* returns:

found USB scanner (vendor=0x04b8 [EPSON], product=0x014b [Expression
11000XL]) at libusb:001:008

*scanimage -V *results in:

scanimage (sane-backends) 1.0.24; backend version 1.0.24

*scanimage -L* *(with and without sudo)* results in:

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).

The *udev rules* appears to work:
[/etc/udev/rules.d]$ ls /dev/bus/usb/001 -ltr
total 0
crw-rw-r--. 1 root root    189, 0 Nov 16 09:14 001
crw-rw-r--. 1 root root    189, 1 Nov 16 09:14 002
crw-rw-r--. 1 root root    189, 3 Nov 16 09:14 004
crw-rw-r--. 1 root root    189, 5 Nov 16 09:14 006
crw-rw-r--+ 1 root scanner 189, 7 Nov 16 10:37 008

and my* groups* include scanner

[/etc/udev/rules.d]$ groups
#myname# wheel usbmon scanner

Thanks for any assistance you can provide.
