Description msevior 1999-05-24 06:03:44 UTC
When my UMAX Astra 610S is connected to the external scsi
bus of my DELL Optiplex GX1 (ataptec Scsi controller), Linux
won't boot but hangs when attempting to "start" the scanner.

If switched on after booting, the scanner is found correctly
on the bus with command:
echo "scsi add-single-device 1 0 3 0" > /proc/scsi/scsi

The scanner works perfectly after doing this using SANE and

The problem was fixed by recompiling with generic scsi built-in the
kernel (i'm using 2.2.7). Linux now identifies the scanner and boots
nicely. PS. Win NT barfs on this so far..

It was in the SANE manual. Guess I should I should RTFM first...

There is little we can do about this now and there are other
workarounds as pointed out.
