In that case I don't understand too much many warnings about too old
versions of softwares.... You can read these warnings on this list and
on some others.

I believe, but I seem to be wrong, that a new version is done to correct
and enhance previous ones, not to make what was working no more working.

I put in my message all what I was aware of: even turning the log_error
to "debug" in dev.conf file, for instance, did not give other
information about my usb scanner.

Before reporting a bug, I want to know if it is really a bug, not
something misconfigured. I sent on the list the error codes returned:
what are these codes if you can't find their meaning somewhere (and not
in the 300Mb man pages you refer to).

OK! I apologize... I don't want to be kicked out in my ass! Though it is
difficult to accept that things that were working are no more working
after an update. I use redhat/fedora since redhat 5 and it used to go
better and better.... I am not sure that it is still the policy when I
read here some messages about fc6 and now f7....
