I posted some time ago to this list about my troubles with getting
a snapscan to work under sane 1.0.1. I got a lot of tips that I have
been trying out,
but i'm still having troubles.

briefly, i have a dual celeron machine runing rh6 and an aha152x scsi
card, kernel 2.2.12smp.
the scanner hangs after a while, before producing useful data, the same
problem others seem
to be having on this list.

i tried terminating the scanner. i then tried it out on my laptop, using
the same versions
of the softwares. the scsi driver is still aha152x with my pcmcia scsi

i tried it with snapscan backend 0.7 and the 1.0 alpha.
with the 1.0 alpha backend, the scanner dumps a lot of data, but the
head does not move.

any more sugestions? i will try the scanner on windows also to rule out
hardware problems
with the scanner, but i'm not very eager to do that because then i must
install windows
on my laptop :-(

other people with this same problem seems to have solved it by using the
0.7 backend, but im not
so lucky. what can the difference be? the firmware revision in the
scanner? is it possible
to upgrade the snapscan?
