Anyone successfully using the OnStream DI30 15/30Gb Internal IDE tape drive
successfully with Linux.

I'm currently using SuSE 6.4 with 2.2.14 kernel and intend to use afio for my
backups.

Cheers,

Sean.

We are, but make sure you use the ide-scsi emulation and download the
drivers for the SCSI version. Later versions of 2.2 include support for
the IDE version, but we were completely unable to get anywhere without
generating huge numbers of i/o errors - using the SCSI drivers has worked
without problem.
