My question was how can a proprietary product,
completely stand-alone in
my ~/ , load in seconds, and discover the SCSI card in seconds, and be
ready to work?
The scsi specifcation requires any device to be able to clearly identify
itself. This is required to get around exactly this issue.
Xsane, when installed into a running machine has always
needed a reboot to
start working. In fact if I cancel a scan (I have learned not to do
this) Xsane will not even find the scanner until I reboot.
I have an Epson Perfection 4990 Photo scanner on a USB port, it does
exactly the same thing if one cancels a scan. I have also found a reboot is
the only way to get it working again. I cannot now remember if just
disconnecting it works.
I apologise for the poor formating I have yet to purchase a modem to allow
my old email system to work properly again.
