Re: tape drive decting problem

You need to include the "stape" driver into the kernel.

Hope this helps!

Re: tape drive decting problem

Hi,
Torsten is right, you need to enable the "stape" kernel module to static and it may take a reboot.

Re: tape drive decting problem

sam-->kernel configuration-->tunable
search for "stape" character

Re: tape drive decting problem

HI...
First run
#kcmodule stape
Will give u output something like
Module State Cause
stape unused

Then give
# kcmodule -h stape=static

-h will hold the changes till next reboot.
