modprobe scanner : module not found.

i compiled kernel version 2.6.6 for fedora core2.

my scanner worked in fdora core 1.
so i assumed it would in FC2.

it shows up in KDE info center.

lsmod shows i dont have usbcore or scanner modules loaded.
ihowever, the USB 2.0 module is loaded.

ive looked through the device driver and USB section of menuconfig
but i cannot find anything that will compile the module "scanner"

what am i missing ?

Hi qwijibow!!

Try loading these modules:

modprobe usb-uhci
modprobe scanner

if you still get those errors, try "insmod scanner". insmod will insert a module in the running kernel. Hope it helps...

Note: this is just a guess

usb-uhci is already loaded. (i believe this is the USB version 2.0 module ?)

the module scanner simply does not exist.
insmod and modprobe both fail with no module.
ive also tried scanner.o and scanner.ko

i even booted my origonal fedora2 kernel.
still no scanner module

HOWEVER, i deleted everything in /etc/sane.d/gt69xx.config
and added just one line, the override surgested by the sane website.

this fixed everything.

i can only assume the scanner module is obsolite in 2.6 ?

thanX for replying anyways.
