1. Topic:

Updated sane packages that prevent possible hardware damage to Epson 1260
scanners are now available for Red Hat Linux 9.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 9 - i386

3. Problem description:

SANE is a program for using scanners.  A problem has been identified with
the driver for the Epson 1260 scanner which could result in the scanner
being damaged.

The motor settings in the original version of the plustek driver were
incorrect, causing a fuse to blow during high resolution scans.  The driver
first appeared in SANE version 1.0.8, and has been fixed in SANE version

All users of EPSON 1260 scanners should upgrade to these erratum packages,
which contain an updated plustek driver (version 0.45-5), and is therefore
not vulnerable to this issue.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade.  Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated.  Those RPMs which are
not installed but included in the list will not be updated.  Note that you
can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains the
desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via Red Hat Network.  Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates.  To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:


This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla for more info):

6. RPMs required:

7. Verification:

These packages are GPG signed by Red Hat for security.  Our key is
available from https://www.redhat.com/security/keys.html

You can verify each package with the following command:
    rpm --checksig -v <filename>

If you only wish to verify that each package has not been corrupted or
tampered with, examine only the md5sum with the following command:
    md5sum <filename>
