Bug Description

I have Agfa Arcus II scanner attached to Adaptec 29160 SCSI card
It works fine in Ubuntu 7.04 but it work bad in Ubuntu 7.10
I also have Minolta scanner attached to USB.

I use program Vuescan. When I run it in Ubuntu 7.04, it show me drop down meny which have entry for Agfa scanner and entry for Minolta scanner. I can choose any of this scanners and it work fine.
When I run Vuescan in Ubuntu 7.10, it show about 30 entrys for Agfa Arcus II and 1 entry for Minolta scanner in same drop down menu .
I can choose any scanner in this menu, but only Agfa scanner works, even if I choose Minolta. And Agfa scanner works bad. From time to time it turn off leds and don't work till system reboot.

When I run XSane, it show me very long list of Agfa Arcus II I even can't choose Minolta scanner because list is out of screen.

When I type sane-find-scanner, it say that I have Agfa Arcus II scanner attached in same time to sg3, to sg4, to sg5.... sg9

I didn't get any answer from forums. :((

hi all !!
Recompiled kernel works good with scanner. Only one Agfa Arcus II. :)))
This page helped me to recompile kernel

in makemenuconfig in Device drivers-> SCSI device support , uncheck option "Probe all LUNs"
