Driving me inSANE...

Post by Nobber » Fri Jul 25, 2003 3:54 pm

Hello.

One computer. Two distributions of Linux: Mandrake 9.0, and a compiled-from-source job based on LFS.

Question: Why would SANE work on one of these OSs (the LFS-based one), but not the other?

Under LFS, I use the umax_pp module and the direct IO method (ppdev doesn't work), and my HP Scanjet 3200C works perfectly. Under Mandrake 9.0, I can't even get started: scanimage -L reports no scanners found.

Same version of SANE on each (backends 1.0.12), and even the same kernel (I copied the kernel config file from LFS over to Mandrake and recompiled). What else can there be left to do?
