Thank you. I have looked into the source package closer now. There are a
lot of C sources provided, but indeed some directories only have
header files and shared object libraries. I didn't notice that at the
beginning. Does that mean I have no chance to use the scanner driver
on armel devices?

Please excuse me, I have pointed you to an out of date website in my
previous email. Here is the direct link to the currently valid
location of the sources. Search for "brscan2 driver" on this side:


Kind regards,
