Hi deano. Problem solved.
I copied the missing libnsl.so.1 and rebooted, then xsane started to detect the scanner
It was good I asked this problem here, your pointers got me pupmed-up to try to find-out what really is the problem. Maybe I got lucky with this scanner today but I don’t know what will happen after another snapshot.
So this one is part of the glibc. I will be watching this next time. Thanks.
If I’ve seen your post a while ago I should have tried it before copying the missing one.
For the record even it was late here it is. I realized the copied one is not recognized byrpm -ql glibc
Hi deano, I duckduckgo regarding libnsl.so. it was mentioned that it was already remove from glibc.
There are suggestion to install libnsl instead. There is a package in tumbleweed it is called libnsl1.
libnsl1 - Legacy Network Support Library (NIS)
Network Support Library for legacy architectures. This library does not have support for IPv6.de here
rpm -ql libnsl1
It shows on my machine after I installed libnsl1
Hi, I am glad you found this out, to me this was very interesting to read. I have 3 brother devices. 1 is a brother mfc-295cn which has usb and ethernet connection capability. I was thinking about working with it a bit with USB connection. Do you recommend to right away install the libnsl1 package?
I also just wanted to ask you that when you copied libnsl.so.1 from your working Tumbleweed where exactly did you copy it to exactly?
I do hope my question is not bothersome by any means. It’s nice that you got it working.
