Information about UMAX firewire/IEEE1394 scanners
I try to add support for UMAX firewire/IEEE1394 scanners like the
UMAX Astra 6400 to the sane-umax scsi backend.
In the moment firewire scanners do not work. After some changes
in the linux sbp2-firewire kernel module I am able to turn the lamp
of the scanner on and off and to start a scan (the scanhead
already does move). But I am not able to get any image data
from the scanner yet. It is unknown if this is a problem in the
sane-umax backend or in the firewire kernel modules.
I can not promise that the backend will support firewire scanners
in the future but I think there is a good chance to get it work.
