xsane library mismatch TC 10
« on: April 23, 2019, 03:57:58 AM »
net-snmp.tcz provides /usr/local/lib/libnetsnmp.so.35, but:

xsane: error while loading shared libraries: libnetsnmp.so.30: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

libsane and sane-backends were recently updated for the change to net-snmp - if you update them, xsane should work.

Just out of curiosity, what is the need for xsane to have snmp support?

Not an xsane expert, but apparently xsane uses snmp for remote management, as the acronym implies. There was a cups backend using snmp which has been, I gather, deprecated.
Try:
snmpwalk -Os -c public -v 1 ip.address.of.printer, and you'll find buried in the MIB interesting things about the printer.

I've only ever used xsane interactively, and usually as a gimp plugin, with a local scanner, using Slackware. So it's for querying network scanners? I vaguely remember this thread http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,19482.0.html identifying sane as the lone outlier for net-snmp, but we didn't get a lot of input then.

As far as I know net-snmp is required for network scanners..
