usb scanner doesn't work with >= 2.6.13
Last modified: 2005-10-29 16:30:05 UTC
Most recent kernel where this bug did not occur:2.6.12
Hardware Environment:AMD Athlon64 3000+
Software Environmet: xorg-x11-6.8.2-r4, gcc-3.4.4-r1, glibc-2.3.5-r2,
libusb-0.1.10a, sane-backends-1.0.15, xsane-0.97
Problem Description: With gentoo-sources-2.6.12 scanner works fine. After
upgrade to 2.6.13 the scanner is recognized proprely but xsane faild with
"Failed to open device `sm3600:3/1`: Error during device I/O."
The fault is present for normal user and root.
Also kooka failed with complaining about sane-backends instalation.
The sane-backends and xsane was reemerged. More details see:
Steps to reproduce: Always
Summary should be updated; this has been reproduced on unpatched 2.6.14-rc5 so
it is not a gentoo-specific bug.
Does SANE use libusb? If it does, this probably indicates that you need to
upgrade your copy of libusb.
Does no one search for old bugs these days? ...
