This is what HP has to say about scanning software for one of their Scanners
we happened to buy a few years back. :-(
Anyone managed to find another option?

Thank you for contacting HP Total Care.
According to your e-mail, you want information on how to obtain the
scanning software compatible with Linux operating system from your HP
Scanjet 5470c scanner. I would like to inform you that HP does not
recommend that you install your scanner under the Linux Operating
System, as it is not supported. Your scanner can be installed only
under Windows operating system.
Your scanner cannot work under a Linux based Operating System. Some HP
scanners are supported using HP Backened for SANE and SCL commands in
LInux. The HP Backened is present in SANE. Usually all HP scanners
with a SCSI-interface support SCL. Some scanners with parallel port
interface or USB are using SCL too. But most of the newer models with
USB do not support SCL and thus are not supported by the hp backend. For
more information about the supported scanners, please visit:
Download the latest SANE 1.0.8 drivers for the scanners from:
For HP scanners and there SCL commands, please visit:

support for scanners on Linux, please contact:

but I've switched to using the GNU/Linux operating system. It works fine

The flavor of GNU/Linux distribution I use is Debian (Knoppix 3.3)
Do you know where I can get a hold of scanning software for this OS?

it says stat64_t not declared.
similar for off64_t and lseek64_t
I have included both <sys/types.h>

I want to configure a Linux system as a router (u can say IP Forwarding). This system can be used to connect two different IP Address schemes & will work as a router.
I've tried it with RedHat 8 & 9 also but no success. I've checked that service iptable is also not running.
I've also enabled IP_FORWARD with echo "1" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward.
I'm not able to ping or telnet to other side network.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Try setting the -forcespeed option instead of speed. By default cdrecord picks the optimal speed for the cd you've slipped inside.
This is necessary as it automatically detects the chemical makeup of the cd and decides optimal speed and power setting for the blank.
More often than not writing at higher speeds than that of the rated speed of the blank gives coasters or degraded cds.

you might use cdrecord too. but try the newer version of cdrecord which should be 2.0
