Just on a side note, you should be commended for placing your system is such
disarray for others to learn from your trials.... I am still too shy of
installing FC2 on any more machines. I installed it clean on a single
machine without a problem and don't want to push my luck with an UPgrade. I
would probably say that if you do want to hang out on the bleeding edge
FedoraCore it should probably not be an UPgrade on an existing system but a
fresh install. ; )
OK, now what does the lsmod command show with the scanner plugged in. Other
than the extra 36 or so lines in modules.conf everything looks normal enough.
Let's see if the kernel has the scanner modules loaded, look for things in
lsmod like usbcore and scanner, etc.
usb-uhci 26124 0 (unused)
ehci-hcd 20008 0 (unused)
usbcore 78752 1 [hid usb-uhci ehci-hcd]
I have a feeling hotplug has something to do with this....... rpm -qi hotplug
The term "hotplugging" refers to the dynamic reconfiguration performed
after a device has been attached to a running system. This package
contains the application which is called by the kernel when a USB
device is added; hotplug then loads the required modules for that
rpm -ql hotplug to see the files that are associated with hotplug.
But let's wait and see what we find out from lsmod first before we blame

looks like a modem/serial device of some sort. hmmmm.
