Just to update you on the problem I am having with the HP5 and Adaptec scsi
I have just installed the latest pre 1.0.5 sane front/back ends. Also, I
have loaded the SG files into the /usr/src/linux tree. I then did the
folowing, which I am not sure is correct, but form the info i've read
make modules modules_install (this took a few hours, I run it overnight)
There were no errors displayed. I then rebooted the machine with 'shutdown
On reboot, in console mode, I did,
lsmod ( which showed the aic7xxx module installed but not the sg )
insmod sg (this then displayed the scsi card paramaters and then showed the
with no errors )
scanimage -T ( the scanner started thru its test and then stalled, ten or
so minutes later
returned the I/O error )
lsmod ( showed that the aic7xxx and sg modules are now both listed in the
scsi_mod module )
I hope this makes sense as I am sending this from memory, I did the test
this morning before work.
Thanks in advance for any light you can shed on this problem.
