I am trying to get an atapi tape drive (seagate Tapestor) to work
under linux without much success. If I put a tape in the driver
it makes some noises and a light flashes for a second ot two
(= drive powered up). There is a device /dev/ht0. If I try;
tar -tvf /dev/ht0
I get segmentation fault. Same if I do mt /dev/ht0
If I do
ide-probe 5752 0 (autoclean)
ide-tape 18808 0
ide-mod 34864 0 [ide-probe ide-tape]
if I do the above again I still get segmentation fault.
What am I doing wrong?
