I have an Archive VP150 tape drive (non scsi) with its own ?402 controller
that worked fine under 0.99p12 but will not work on 1.0.9 or 1.1.59. The
biggest difference I guess was that .99p12 was SLS and the other two
are Slackware. All of the FAQs, HOWTO's and LDP books only talk about
scsi and floppy tape drives. Where can I get help for this one? I know it
worked once upon a time with Linux... I am sure of it...
When I try to back up to the drive it lists a few files (with tar or cpio)
and then freezes up when it goes to actually write them to the tape. I can
reset the tape with /dev/tape-reset, but that is all I can do.
