I have installed sane-1.0.2 on my Redhat 6.1 system, and can scan images
from my HP4P on /dev/sga.
I am trying to get saned working, but cannot convince inetd to launch it.
If I run saned -d128 from a shell prompt, I can connect to it and scan
across the network. I figure that most of my config is ok in that case. if i
run from a shell prompt without -d128, it will not work.
I added this line to /etc/services:
sane 6566/tcp # the sane service
I added these lines to /etc/inetd.conf:
# Provides network scanner Access
sane stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/sbin/saned saned
I sent inetd a sighup by 'kill -s SIGHUP 453' (453 is pid of inetd).
Check in /var/log/messages and find this entry:
Jun 4 18:46:48 cancerman inetd: sane/tcp: socket: Invalid argument
If i comment out the line in services, it complains:
Jun 4 18:24:20 cancerman inetd: sane/tcp: unknown service
which I guess is to be expected.
I did have the line in inetd.conf with saned.saned for the user.group
setting, then changed it to root while mucking around - still had the same
Anyone know how I get saned to be launched by inetd?
