Description Manolis Tzanidakis 2006-05-23 09:09:42 UTC
I have an Epson Perfection 1260 scanner connected on my Linksys NSLU2 running
armeb-softfloat-linux-uclibc. The scanner works on x86 with the plustek backend,
but on the NSLU2 scanimage can't find it.
(I've added the 'arm' keyword on the sane-backends ebuild)

# lsusb | grep Epson
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 04b8:011d Seiko Epson Corp. Perfection 1260 Photo

# scanimage -L
No scanners were identified. blah blah

sane-find-scanner doesn't find anything either.

Any suggestions ?

You could start giving me an idea about which hardware you're actually talking - "emerge info" comes to mind. I have just read about this NSLU2 for the first time.

Some information about NSLU2 and installing gentoo on it:

Also, check the attached files for 'emerge --info' and a dmesg.

Let me know if you need anything else.

Looks like I need a clue. No idea.
Comment 6 Manolis Tzanidakis 2006-07-07 03:25:35 UTC
I think the problem is caused by linking sane-backends with uclibc. Anyway, I installed debian on that poor thing since gentoo took ages to install anything (it's a very slow embedded device), so I can't further assist you.
Unless anyone else might help you, you should close this bug.
Thanks anyway.
