I am not shure which tape-device-name to use in FreeBSD 4.8
I have one SCSI-tape (a HP-compatible DLT VS80-streamer)
sa0 (or sa0.0 for the first tapedevice)
I know - the "n" at the preceding means "nonerewinding"-device.
But what's with the "r"?
My second problem is: How to switch to "hardware-compression" on the
commandline using tar or similar?
Exacuting "mt -f /dev/nsa0.0 comp on" doesn't switch the compression on - I
still have only 40 GB on the tape.
With best regards from Vienna
