Re: Media Tape not seen

You need to install the tape driver and reboot:

 

# kcmodule stape=static
NOTE:    The configuration being loaded contains the following change(s)
         that cannot be applied immediately and which will be held for
         the next boot:
      -- The configuration is supposed to include a module 'stape' which
         is not available without a kernel rebuild.
WARNING: The automatic 'backup' configuration currently contains the
         configuration that was in use before the last reboot of this
         system.
     ==> Do you wish to update it to contain the current configuration
         before making the requested change? y
       * The automatic 'backup' configuration has been updated.
       * Building a new kernel for configuration 'nextboot'...
       * Adding version information to new kernel...
       * The requested changes have been saved, and will take effect at
         next boot.
Module               State   Cause    
stape   (now)        unused           
        (next boot)  static  explicit

Hope this helps!
