As I have only very basic skills with yum command I had  problems with 
the same packages (i.e. sane-backends, sane-backends-libs, 
sane-backends-libs-gphoto) available in two repos. Then I ended in using 
yum to remove everything concerning xsane/sane (including hp sane 
packages), then downloading from linuxtech and running "rpm -U ..." and 
then with yum I again installed xsane.

Now I'm able to see the CanoScan LiDE 210 in xsane and it seems to work, 
at least I'm able to scan single page into a PDF file.

And the command line says

# LANG="" yum info sane-backends
