Description alex 2003-05-03 13:40:18 UTC
When attempting to scan a document using xsane 0.86 and the umax sane-backend I
get kernel panic and must reboot. If I use the command line scanimage option I
can succesfully scan the document. I cannot find any relevant info in the kernel
 I emerged xsane 0.90 but it also caused this problem.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce: xsane
2.set scan mode to color start button

Actual Results:  
scanner attempts to scan the page, appears to finish then kernel panic.

Expected Results:  
scanned the document and allowed to save the image

Gentoo 1.4, kde 3.11, aic7xxx scsi driver loaded as a module, umax vista s6 scsi
scanner, gentoo sources kernel 2.4.20 r2 with preemptive patch and low latency.
nvidia geforce2 vid card.

Comment 2 Tim Yamin (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-08-10 16:14:20 UTC
Could we have a register dump please?

Also, what version of sane-backends are you using?
Comment 3 Brian Jackson (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-09-24 00:52:06 UTC
can you try to get some more info from the panic? how about trying this with a vanilla kernel.
Comment 4 alex 2003-09-24 09:40:58 UTC
I recently upgraded to the latest xsane and sane backends. they work beautifully. there fore I am closing this bug.
