<pre wrap="">On my system, if the BIOS is set to use EPP mode, it takes
about an <i class="moz-txt-slash"><span class="moz-txt-tag">/</span>hour<span
class="moz-txt-tag">/</span></i> for modprobe epst to finish.
It may be worth trying turning on the scanner, modprobe
epst, wait an hour and then check!
It's also worth trying switching the mode in the BIOS setup
screen and see if it makes any difference.
Jón<span class="moz-txt-citetags">> </span>Maybe could i have the same problem? How can i do to know?
<pre wrap="">I tried to switch the BIOS parport mode from EPP (that give me the correct compatibility for EPP with cat /proc/sys/dev/parport/parport0/modes)
to ECP & EPP mode that give me the sequent result:
~$ cat /proc/sys/dev/parport/parport0/modes
that seems wasn't compatible with EPP mode, but when i trie to load the esp module with
~$ modprobe esp
i could see in the dmesg log this message:
[4294719.954000] epst.0: epst 0.92 (0.92), Shuttle EPST at 0x378 mode 2 (PS/2) dly 1 nice 0 sg 16

that talk to me that the scanner was succesfully detected!!
After have changed the permission of the scanner i succesfully detected the scanner with sane-find-scanner!!!
thanks a lot for the help!!!
