Hi, all.

i have been updating from sarge. How can i determine if I could update from a later version?

Trying to get hp scanjet3970 to work
find 'NEW' driver stuff on SANE site which has a standalone version 
decide to use this because my version of sane doesn't support the 3970
my version of sane (updated online from sarge is 1.0.13-2) and after the update .....
my version of sane (scanimage --version is 1.0.12)
i _am_ running as recommended as root#
driver package script install.sh stalls because ... long story
driver package script update.sh stalls because it doubts I have SVN client installed
update from sarge doesn't find svn (or SVN)

bearing in mind all the !@#$ i had in not getting openoffice to work maybe now is the time to update my linux version except I want the scanner now not in weeks.

any help here please?
