I'm running Linux kernel 2.0.36 and 2.2.6 and and getting an old Exabyte
8200 to work. It works great. However, when I run under 2.2.6, I get the
following error when a large operation completes (i.e. tar cf /dev/st0 ...):
st0: Error 25040000 (sugg. bt 0x20, driver bt 0x25, host bt 0x4).
Then /dev/st0 throws an I/O error and it takes a bit of time (perhaps 10
seconds?) until I can issue further commands with mt.
Everything appears to be just fine. I can rewind the tape and verify that
the data is recorded correctly. I've looked at st.c (which generates the
error) and haven't been able to decrypt the error. Is it Exabyte 8200
specific? What does it mean?
I don't appear to get this error under 2.0.36...
Can anyone help?
