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.
Steps to Reproduce:
2.set scan mode to color
3.click start button
scanner attempts to scan the page, appears to finish then kernel panic.
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.
i really dont know why this was assigned to me, i dont know much
about scanners or X!
Could we have a register dump please?
Also, what version of sane-backends are you using?
can you try to get some more info from the panic? how about trying this with a vanilla kernel.
I recently upgraded to the latest xsane and sane backends. they work beautifully. there fore I am closing this bug.
