Now that I know I have to use ftape to support my Conner CTT800E tape
drive I am at the next layer of the onion. I asked this on the
linux-tape discussion list but have not yet received a reply so I
though I'd try here as well.
After installing ftape, I execute the 'insert' script for the modules.
The script outputs a number of messages including some errors. Here
are the messages that I think are errors:
can't locate module parport
trakker.c (trakker_checksum) - checksum error (off by 9c).
...... repeated several times with different "off by xx" number.......
trakker.c (trakker_detect) - can't find trakker interface for ftape id
trakker.c (trakker_detect) - ft_parport_probe(fdc, &trakker->parinfo)
bpck-fdc.c (bpck_fdc_detect) - - can't find bpck interface for ftape
bpck-fdc.c (bpck_fdc_detect) - - ft_parport_probe(fdc, &bpck->parinfo)
I obvously have some kind of configuration or installation error but
do not know here to go from here. Can someone point me in the right
direction? The available doccumentation has been no help. TIA.
