thanks for your mailing list , i hope i'll find the answer of my problem. I'm
newbie, so sorry if i annoy you with my question...
i try to use my Scanjet 4300C scanner under Linux Mandrake 8 distribution.
for this, i installed Sane 1.0.4; Sane doesn't speak about this Scanner which
is both a parallel & a USB scanner like HP5200C (so my experience would be
interesting for others who have the same scanner)
i follow the instruction from www.torque.net page about ppScsi.
i patch my 2.4.3 kernel with linux-ppscsi.patch
i can load all modules except the protocol modules epst; lsmod gives me
lp 5296 0 (unused)
ppscsi 11360 0
parport_pc 13456 1
parport 24576 1 [lp ppscsi parport_pc]
sg 25392 0 (unused)
ide-scsi 7568 0
scsi_mod 85312 2 [ppscsi sg ide-scsi]
if i try to load epst module, it gives me the following error :
Using /lib/modules/2.4.3-20mdk/kernel/drivers/scsi/epst.o : init_module: No
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including
invalid IO or IRQ parameters
dmesg give me this :
SCSI subsystem driver Revision: 1.00
scsi0 : SCSI host adapter emulation for IDE ATAPI devices
Vendor: CDWriter Model: IDE4x4x24 Rev: Z024
parport0: PC-style at 0x378 [PCSPP,EPP]
parport0: Found 1 daisy-chained devices (perhaps my scanner :-]
ppSCSI 0.92 (0.92) installed
lp0: using parport0 (polling).
a cat /proc/devices gives me this :
in your page you say that we must have an appropriate adapter connected to
one of our parallel ports, and that our SCSI bus is powering the adapter. I
don't know how to "powering the adapter" (is this already made ?)
again thanks for your help, and a great Hello from France :-) !
