ftape i/o errors

Post by Klaus Hartne » Thu, 29 Dec 1994 02:22:15



This is not in the FAQ, the old news have expired and now the problem hit me:

The old ftape works with the old kernel (1.0.9) and the old compiler (2.4.5).

However with the new compiler (2.5.8) and new kernel (1.1.74), the new
ftape (1.14d) fails with i/o errors.

What is the trick to get it working?

Did you compile kernel with QIC-117 support?

i installed 1.1.72 and ran into the same problem.  the fix is found in
sunsite: /pub/Linux/kernel/ftape/ftape-1.14d.tar.gz (pretty sure the
path is accurate, but might not be).  just compile ftape.o from the
source and then change your "insmod ftape.o" to point to the new
module.  you shouldn't have a problem after that.
