|Under 2.6.x kernel(s) there were a set of patches allowing attachment of so-called parallel port scsi devices like my fine hp 5100c flatbed scanner.
Recently upgraded to a distribution with 3.13.x kernel and no similar support/patches have I yet found.
These folks have had success up to 3.7.2 a year or so ago, but alas have little in the way of helpfulness to direct my way:
Really hate to abandon this little scanner because some code can't come together. I can make the ppscsi module okay, but the epst scanner module barfs on compile.
Any help suggestions directionality would be much appreciated.
