I got a HP ScanJet 4300C scanner last week, and tried to use it with the
USB port. After some days (and nights!), it really doesn't want to work,
so I decided to try the thing with windows. It works but only using the
parallel port, not the USB one!
So, back to Linux, decided to use the parport driver, with epst. No way!
Now I'm here, hopping some helps as after a week and a mail from the HP
support saying that 'HP E-Mail support for Linux doesn't exist', I feel
slightly tired (my wife too :-))
* Mandrake 7.2, with the 2.2.17 kernel (tried the 2.4 one too).
* Tried some BIOS settings (bi-directional, EPP, ECP...)
* Tried some epst parameters, following 'ppscsi.c' directives
[insmods and some messages]
*'insmod scsi_mod' doesn't work, I think scsi support was compiled into
the kernel, as I have an SCSI CD-Writer (it works).
* 'insmod sg': ok
* 'insmod parport': ok.
* 'insmod parport_pc io=0x378 irq=7 dma=3' reports 'parport0: PC-style
at 0x378, irq7, dma 3 [SPP,PS2,EPP]. I give the io, irq, and dma
parameters as I thought it was source of problem,
/proc/parport/0/hardware reported 'irq: none' without these options.
* 'insmod ppscsi': ok
* 'insmod epst' reports 'Device or resource busy', with some hints about
IO and IRQ parameters. /var/log/messages reports :
epst.1: version code reads: 0xc7
epst.1: port 0x378 mode 0 test failed (1,-1,0)
(and so on, with all modes tested)
I found some messages talking about the lp module, but it's not loaded.
The printer is connected on the printer port OF THE SCANNER, and it
works! Maybe the lp module was compiled within the kernel, too.
Any help (or hint) should be appreciated, as I really don't know what
else to try now.
Thanks in advance,
