Thanks Oliver. I tried a few things assuming is was a SCSI buss/driver problem
as you suggested. Being a long time SCSI user, I have a few different SCSI
cards around. The original configuration was using an old Adaptec AHA1542CF.
I substituted in a newer Adaptec 2940AU and got similar results. I also tried
an ASUS PCI-SC200 ( 53C810 ) and got the same result. In all instances I tried
both the scanner as the only device on the BUSS and in addition to other
devices. Of course I terminated appropriately.
I then tried using a different computer with RH6.2 and the SC200 and was
surprised to find that the scan was clean. I'm assuming if I tried the other
SCSI cards I would get a similar result. So I'm back to where I started
without a solution ( Using this other computer for scanning is not a solution
). My current configuration does not work for me and I'm at a loss as to how
to correct the problem.
I get clean scans if I use Windows or another machine. I get dirty scans if I
use sane on this particular machine. I've tried different cards, therefor
different drivers with the same result. I've tried the same buss arrangement
on two different computers with different results so it doesn't seem to be buss
Any other suggestions on a way to tackle this issue?
