Kernel Bug Tracker – Bug 5436
module scanner is missing from /drivers/usb/image folder
Last modified: 2005-10-14 10:25:07 UTC
Most recent kernel where this bug did not occur: 2.6.9 (i think)
Distribution: Fedora Devel
Hardware Environment: Intel PIII 450 , UMAX 3450U (scanner)
Software Environment: xsane 1.0.16
missing scanner.o module in kernel tree (from folder /drivers/usb/image)
Steps to reproduce:
plugin the scanner (turn it on) or trying modprobe scanner.
I don't think there *is* a kernel scanner driver anymore. Since 2.6.4 maybe?
"With Linux 2.4.* you could either use the kernel scanner module or libusb to
access USB scanners. In Linux 2.6.4 the kernel scanner module was removed.
Therefore with this and later kernels libusb must be used."
Greg, can this bug be closed?
A kernel driver is not needed for the usb scanner, use xscane, it works just fine
