xane*.i686, sane-backends.i686 missing from x86_64 repo
Last modified: 2016-07-19 13:27:57 EDT
Description of problem:
sane-backends.i686 and xsane*.i686 packages should be available in the x86_64 repo. Currently, they are not, although sane-backends-lib.i686 and some others are available.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce on 64-bit F22 install:
1. dnf list sane-backends
2. dnf list xsane*
Only the 64-bit packages are listed. The 32-bit pkgs are available in the 32-bit repo, but not in the 64-bit.

But http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/releases/22/Everything/x86_64/os/Packages/s/ only has .x86_64 version of this package, although it has other sane-backends .i686 packages. including

[ ] xsane-gimp-0.999-17.fc22.i686.rpm 2015-01-06 02:30 248K
But http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/releases/22/Everything/x86_64/os/Packages/x/ only has the .x86_64 versions.
x86_64 repo should contain all the above 32-bit pkgs.
Thought this was a dnf problem initially. Please see Bug 1251588 for more details.
Should they be separate bugs filed for sane-backends and xsane?

No, it's quite intentional that sane-backends and xsane* are only available in 64bit versions. The sane-backends library and driver subpackages are available for 32bit as well to allow 32bit applications to use them. The sane-backends main package has files that are common to both architectures and therefore needs to exist only once on a system. XSane is an application and so only exists as a 64bit package.
If I understand your reason for closing, it is that provided the libraries etc are there for 32 bit, I should be able to use a 32-bit scanner driver with the 64-bit xsane and sane-backends.
But this is not the case. I removed the 32-bit xsane and sane-backends from my workstation and replaced with the 64-bit packages. My scanner worked with the 32-bit packages installed, but with 64-bit I get from xsane the "No devices available" even though I can see it with sane-find-scanner.
# sane-find-scanner will now attempt to detect your scanner. If the
# result is different from what you expected, first make sure your
# scanner is powered up and properly connected to your computer.
# No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that
# you have loaded a kernel SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.

The scanner is a Canon ImageFormula P-150 and the 32-bit Linux driver is provided by Canon.
Here are the packages as they are installed now:

xsane.x86_64 0.999-17.fc22 @System

Is it supposed to work to run 32-bit scanner with 64-bit xsane / sane-backends, or not? If so, how, as it doesn't work for me? If not, then shouldn't the 32-bit pkgs be in the repo?
