Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:35:46 EDT
Description of Problem:
My Canon CanoScan 660U isn't recognized by the USB drivers.
Steps to Reproduce:

2. monitor /var/log/messages
Not recognized by any driver
Correct vendor information should be displayed.
Aug 12 14:02:59 hoth kernel: hub.c: USB new device connect on bus1/1,
assigned device number 6
Aug 12 14:02:59 hoth kernel: usb.c: USB device 6 (vend/prod 0x4a9/0x2208)
is not claimed by any active driver.
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).
Don't have access to the scanner anymore. Close it?
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.
