Dieter,
why do you reopen it when it is fixed?
What does not work for you when you use our packages
(an up-to-date yast2-scanner and the updated hal)?

I can confirm that it works with the updated hal package
(now hal-0.5.12-10.12.1) so that I close it again as fixed.

Strange:
I used
http://software.opensuse.org/search
to search for "hal" for openSUSE 11.1
and got only "openSUSE:11.1/standard"
but no result for "update" which is
from my point of view a bug in
http://software.opensuse.org/search
because of course I do want to see
also our official update packages.


Dieter,
you mix up something.

Of course we (i.e. Suse/Novell) and the SANE project
appreciate your enhancement for SCSI scanners very much
but you cannot enforce us to apply your patches now.
Again: Of course we appreciate your patches.
But I am the sane-backends package maintainer
and I (together with my colleagues) decide (based on
our general packaging policies and individual reasoning)
when and how we apply which patches and when and how we
make new package versions available and you cannot enforce
what work I have to do first of all because you are
not my employer - this is Suse/Novell - not you.

You confuse a hardcoded list of SCSI scanners in the SANE
sources which creates a better 70-scanner.fdi during
build-time of the SANE software with my generic
stuff in test_and_set_scanner_access_permissions
(just read my comment #33) which runs at runtime
on the end-user's system to add missing scanners
(both USB and SCSI) to 80-scanner.fdi.
When we upgrade the SANE software we will have better
built-in support for some SCSI scanner "processors"
via 70-scanner.fdi but we still need support for all SCSI
scanner "processors" so that I cannot drop the generic stuff.
Therefore I want to have the generic stuff working
which is what the bug is about.
Only when the hardcoded list of SCSI scanners in SANE
is complete and continuously updated for new
SCSI scanners - note Olaf Meeuwissen's mail
http://lists.alioth.debian.org/pipermail/sane-devel/2009-January/023512.html
then we do no longer need the generic stuff.
