Does it work if you manuallty load the drivers?  If it does, this should be a
SHOULD-FIX (and if not, then it's not critical).

Comment 2 Kjartan Maraas 2002-07-23 08:28:46 UTC
Don't have access to the scanner anymore. Close it?

Comment 3 Pete Zaitcev 2002-07-23 16:54:45 UTC
Scanners are known for not following a class, so the driver
allows for user specified vendor and product values
(do modinfo /lib/modules/2.4.18-5/kernel/drivers/usb/scanner.o).
You have to edit modules.usb manually, to make hotplug to work.
