No rebuilt RPM files. I got them from the usual place:


Via 'Package Download Page' I got the bundle.

And via 'Source File Download Page' I got the sources in case
dependencies were not met by the bundle.

SLACKWARE allows to expand RPM archives via:

  rpm2cpio RPM | cpio --extract

I have now written some shell scripts to uninstall all files and
directories, one to create directories before installation and one
to call 'iscan-registry'.

1. First I called the uninstall scripts.
2. Then I called the make-dir script.

3. From top I did:

   rpm2cpio iscan-data-1.36.0-1.noarch.rpm | cpio --extract

   rpm2cpio iscan-plugin-perfection-v370-1.0.0-2.x86_64.rpm | cpio --extract

   rpm2cpio iscan-2.30.1-1.usb0.1.ltdl7.x86_64.rpm | cpio --extract

4. Then I called the registry script.
   The interpreter file is now in '/var/lib/iscan'.

That was all to make 'iscan' work. And 'xsane' and 'scanimage' with
the Epson V370.
