Description Radek Bíba 2005-10-08 08:44:45 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; cs-CZ; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
I have Epson Stylus CX3200 All-In-One device (printer, scanner, copier), it used
to work out of the box but the scanner no longer does with new kernel - when I try
to scan something it's not even found. This appears in /var/log/messages:

kernel: usb 2-1: usbfs: interface 1 claimed by usblp while 'xsane' sets config #1

It worked with kernel-2.6.12-1.1447_FC4, I just retested it.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. plug in Epson Stylus CX3200 and turn it on (perhaps other devices are affected
too, who knows)
2. try to scan something, e.g. GIMP: File - Acquire - Device dialog, or just run
scanimage -L

Actual Results:  scanner not found

Expected Results:  scanner found

Additional info:

Important: this is a known issue discussed on sane-devel mailing list, please see:

and yes, `rmmod usblp' helps.

Feel free to reassign this bug to sane-backends if you think they are to blame.

2.6.14-1.1637_FC4 has been released as an update for FC4.
Please retest with this update, as a large amount of code has been changed in
this release, which may have fixed your problem.

Thank you.

I'm sorry, this release doesn't fix my problem.
Comment 3 Dave Jones 2006-02-03 01:15:18 EST
This is a mass-update to all currently open kernel bugs.

A new kernel update has been released (Version: 2.6.15-1.1830_FC4)
based upon a new upstream kernel release.

Please retest against this new kernel, as a large number of patches
go into each upstream release, possibly including changes that
may address this problem.

This bug has been placed in NEEDINFO_REPORTER state.

No improvement :(
Comment 5 Radek Bíba 2006-02-05 03:42:05 EST
Actually yes. Old sane-backends were installed on the machine where this problem
occured. Update to sane-backends-1.0.17-0.fc4.1, which were released on New Year's
Day, resolves this issue.
