I recently got the ftape4.04a tape driver from Claus Justus Heine for my
system. I have an Iomega Ditto Max Pro tape drive on a Ditto Dash DX
Interesting thing: it does not work under X! Meaning, I cannot issue tape
commands from a terminal emulator window. I have to restart in runlevel 3
and use it in normal console text mode.
Any ideas why this might be? Anybody else experienced this?
