SOLVED : How to make HP scanner work on Fedora 7 ?


Updated from core 4 to core 7 and can't get my scanner to work. It's an HP PSC 1600 series, scanner/Printer/Copier that worked fine in core 4. The printer works fine.
I edited /etc/sane.d/dll.conf, commented out everything but "hp", ran sane-detect-scanner, edited /etc/sane.d/hp.conf and inserted the line "usb 0x03f0 0x4811", which I got from the "sane-detect-scanner" command. I commented out "/dev/scanner" as this isn't present in "/dev", I checked my /etc/sane.d/dll.conf and /etc/sane.d/hp.conf against my old config from core 4 and they are identical, yet "scanimage -L" outputs nothing, it just hangs there.
I probably should add I installed a tv card, one with the bt848 chip, uses the bttv driver. Is this causing my problem? Do i need to create the devices? I'm pulling my hair out here, what little bit i've got left.
Here's my /etc/sane.d/hp.conf:

scsi HP
# Uncomment the following if you have "Error during device I/O" on SCSI
# option dumb-read
#
# The usual place for a SCSI-scanner on Linux
#/dev/scanner
#
# USB-scanners supported by the hp-backend
# HP ScanJet 4100C
# RAY, The next line was generated running "sane-find-scanner"
# (vendor=0x03f0 [HP], product=0x4811
usb 0x03f0 0x4811
# HP ScanJet 5200C
#usb 0x03f0 0x0401
# HP ScanJet 62X0C
#usb 0x03f0 0x0201
# HP ScanJet 63X0C
#usb 0x03f0 0x0601
#
# Uncomment the following if your scanner is connected by USB,
# but you are not using libusb
# /dev/usb/scanner0
# option connect-device

And here's /etc/sane.d/dll.conf:

# enable the next line if you want to allow access through the network:

# Uncomment the following line if hpoj is installed:

SOLVED:
okay, i removed all hp related packages and downloaded and compiled hplip-2.7.10.tar.gz configured with "--enable-scan-build", did "make install" and rebooted and the scanner works now.

I probably should have done a reply instead of editing my post. See the last few lines above for the solution to this problem and I hope it helps someone.
