    Civileme, Oliver:
    After ensuring I have a stable ready light on the scanner, and rebooting the
    system, logging in as root. calling modprobe aic7xxx just seems to go off to
    never never land. If I close the Konsole windiow then call modprobe aic7xxx
    again I am returned to the root prompt. I if I call modprobe sg some times it
    hangs, sometimes I am returned to the root prompt. If I then call scanimage, it
    hangs, no status is returned and I am not returned to the root prompt. This is
    might be do to a bad aic7xxx file.
