As posted at http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-175465-postdays-0-postorder-asc-highlight-sanebackends-start-25.html#3023800 I created an ebuild for the standalone package of the parallel port SCSI adapter driver suite ppscsi.

Thanks -- works well for me.

ppscsi-20060424.ebuild w/ cleanup
Removed extraneous dependencies and made more extensive use of linux-mod eclass.
well done with the ebuild, and cheers. Can I suggest the use of a || die after the make? It failed to build on mine (don't worry - it was my fault), but instead of exiting in error, it just ploughed straight on.
Ok, scratch what I saad about it being my fault. Here is the emerge output:
kryten ~ # emerge ppscsi
Calculating dependencies... done!

You can see that the kernel it should be building against is 2.6.19-r4 (this kernel is freshly installed and compiled). But because my running kernel hasn't changed yet, it has failed. (the 2.6.19-r2 sources have a hacked patch against it for ppscsi which I made - hence the failure).
Any ideas what to do to fix it?

New improved ebulid
Added simple SED statement change Makefile to use $KV_FULL
Added 2.6.19 patch
Added "|| die" to capture make failures

Patch to go with improved ebuild
Works well here.
One small thing I should have fixed: the KEYWORDS should be "~x86", not "x86", for the time being.
Can some one fix the drivers for >=2.6.20. The workstruct changes broke the drivers.

New patch for 2.6.20 kernel
Thanks for the feedback Sourav. I have made the change to keywords now.
Also added a new patch for the 2.6.20 kernel (you still need the 2.6.19 one in your overlay). Seems to work okay for me, but I can only test the onscsi module.
I am using the 5100c, but it always is using polling so my cpu is always at 100% when scanning. How do i get the modules to use interupts instead of polling, or is it not possible?

The ebuild w/ both patches works well with kernel 2.6.21.
One small hiccup is that it seems to take a while for the driver to load into the kernel. I will see if it's repeatable. Perhaps related to the following dmesg error message:
Device driver host1 lacks bus and class support for being resumed.
Device driver target1:0:0 lacks bus and class support for being resumed.

fixes config.h <-> autoconf.h in ppscsi.h
Newer kernels use /lib/modules/"kernel-version"/build/linux/autoconf.h instead of config.h, so I had to change it inside of ppscsi.h. I have also included the other patch on ppscsi.c other people made.
Are the changes in your patch not covered in Russell's two patches? I use Russell's ebuild with kernel 2.6.21 ...

This is for the 2.6.24 kernel. Don't know if and #if will be needed for older kernels.

The two patches I'm using are just a combination of all the posted patches here.

diff for 2.6.25 kernel
You should try this patch. It worked for me on 184.108.40.206 (http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-5142421.html#5142421)

I combined all the patches and ebuild change and created a tarball with all the latest changes. I have tested this on both gentoo-sources 2.6.25-r4 & 2.6.24-r8 and my ScanJet 5100C scanner works. :-)

Thanks for the post! I was hoping not to have to trash my scanner just yet. It still works. :-) I combined all the ebuild and patches into one tarball. I improved your patch so that the ebuild can compile with previous kernels (< 2.6.25) as well as 2.6.25.
Anyone have any idea how to fix this compile error? I'd like to have this work for 2.6.28.

ppscsi is quite dead. This bug should be closed and marked wontfix.
This package died a long time ago. I think it's time to close this bug.
