Thanks very much for your reply. Very curious about my support emails. I've sent two (2), both to the address you give (firstname.lastname@example.org
)... I'm looking at them in my 'sent' mailbox (Thunderbird) now. Those messages - like most of my email - are GNUPG signed (but not encrypted)... that shouldn't have any bearing. Odd where they ended up.
But at least I can connect to you via the forum here. Here is the 2d message I sent - a follow-on problem (small) to the same SCSI situation:
Sat 24 Jul 2010
Hello Vector Linux,
I never received any response to my email request for installation
help (see below).
I have, however, managed to resolve in part the problem I described.
I have successfully reconfigured and recompiled the kernel. The result
is both a working PCMCIA network adapter (Xircom CEM56-100) and a
working SCSI bus via PCMCIA Adaptec 1460B.
However, I still have a (small?) SCSI problem, and I hope you can give
me some guidance. My SCSI scanner, a Microtek X12USL, is now detected
on boot up (along with 2 other devices on the bus). But no /dev/ entry
gets created for it: lsscsi returns:
[2:0:3:0] scanner ScanMaker X12USL 1.30 -
Other devices on the bus do get /dev nodes (/dev/sda; /dev/sr0; /dev/sdb).
How can I get a /dev node created for the scanner so that sane,
scanimage, etc. will find it and work?
I haven't heard back from the support people yet
I am one of the support persons. I never received a request for support.
The only information I see is a purchase.
Your solution of recompiling the kernel was the way to go.
If you or feel there is a need to pursue this I can email you or you can
If you did send a request for help, you can respond here. I will check
to see if something got missed.
