Unfortunately I use a flaky news server and many times I can't get on to read
articles, so if you could, please respond privately.
I upgraded my kernel source to 1.1.55. Upon booting, I got the ftape error
stating that it is incompatible with the kernel (from insmod /boot/ftape.o)
I then recompiled ftape, and copied the ftape.o file back to /boot. Now when
I boot, I don't see that error message.
Instead, when I try to use mt, or tar on the tape drive, the drive light does
not come on and I get the following message
tar: can't open /dev/nftape : I/O error
Before I upgraded kernel versions it worked great.
I will post my findings to this newsgroup
