I use a SCSI scanner drived by a PCI Acard AEC6710D
I can not access it with full install Puppy 528

PupScan said :
DESCRIPTION: SCSI storage controller: Artop Electronic Corp AEC6712D SCSI ( ... but it's written AEC6710D on the card )
VENDOR: 1191 DEVICE: 8040


I have found this (thanks Aitch) : http://cateee.net/lkddb/web-lkddb/SCSI_ACARD.html
but I've no idea how to compile it.

I will greatly appreciate any help.

That's the atp870u SCSI driver, which is a standard driver (no need to compile it from third party sources), but Barry trims out "exotic" drivers such as these with normal Puppy releases.

We could provide you with this driver ... but there's likely to be some extra driver dependencies involved as well, and it would take some experimentation ...
if you need SCSI support, the best option is to use one of the dedicated Puppy SCSI-releases; I think the most recent is Slacko 5.3.1. The ISO to download is "slacko-5.3.1-SCSI-MAIN.iso" from
http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/puppy-5.3.1/

Thanks tempestuous for this answer.
I saw this version 5.3.1-SCSI, but I have to stay on 5.2.8 because I use a french and educational distri.

I also saw this comment, but I don't know if it can work.

Well here's the atp870u driver to try. After installing this dotpet, reboot. Puppy should automatically detect your SCSI interface and load the atp870u driver. Check with "lsmod".
Now I think it's necessary to load the generic "sg" SCSI driver, with this command -
Code:
modprobe sg


Regarding scanner setup, I can't help.

It works !!!! Thanks tempestuous !!!

After reboot, I've done this :
Code:
# modprobe sg
# scanimage -L
device `snapscan:/dev/sg3' is a Acer FlatbedScanner_9 flatbed scanner
# xsane

(xsane:6746): Gtk-WARNING **: GtkSpinButton: setting an adjustment with non-zero page size is deprecated

(xsane:6746): Gtk-WARNING **: GtkSpinButton: setting an adjustment with non-zero page size is deprecated

(xsane:6746): Gtk-WARNING **: GtkSpinButton: setting an adjustment with non-zero page size is deprecated

Just a litle problem with the display of the outline's window.
But I can scan !

I've done a small script in Startup to load the sg SCSI driver:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
modprobe sg

It works fine !!
Thanks, merci beaucoup, muchas gracias... Very Happy
