My scanner has stopped working in Linux?!
I have *been* successfully using my scanner in Linux. I have an Agfa
Snapscan 310 (SCSI) and it worked fine with the Gimp and SANE. Recently,
however, it has just stopped responding. I go to 'preview' and the
scanner light starts blinking and never stops until I switch off the
scanner. I am currently using Gimp 1.0.4-1 and SANE 0.74-2. The most
recent version of SANE (1.00-1) has *never* worked for me.
I am assuming something has broken SANE - most likely with recent kernel
compilations. I am currently using 2.2.6 on Debian 2.0. The scanner is
successfully recognised on bootup:

Please tell me if you spot anything wrong here.
I did upgrade to Slink using an official Debian CD - do you think
something broke here? The trouble is I just can't remember at what stage
the scanner worked - was it before I upgraded to Debian 2.1, before I
upgraded to the 2.2 kernel, oh hell!!!
Incidently I booted into Windows 98 and the scanner worked perfectly
Any help would be *very* much appreciated.
