on my C7 system:

# yum list installed | grep -y sane
libsane-hpaio.x86_64                  3.13.7-6.el7_2.1               @updates   
sane-backends.x86_64                  1.0.24-9.el7                   @anaconda  
sane-backends-drivers-scanners.x86_64 1.0.24-9.el7                   @anaconda  
sane-backends-libs.x86_64             1.0.24-9.el7                   @anaconda

and my lide 220 works for me. In previous Centos versions, one had to
hack at it because they were shipping old versions of Sane that didn't
have the right incantations done over them. I think that (as one other
poster mentioned) it involved downloading Fedora source RPMs and
building them, or some such. but I had to do none of that for C7.
