Problem with DAT40 on DL380 G2

Hi, Everyone.

I´m new here and I´m having some problem to get my DAT40 working properly with my server running a Linux Fedora 6.
I have tested the tape device on this server with windows 2003 and arcserver, in that test all worked perfectly, I could write and restore the data inside the tape.

On the linux box, I could engage the tape, but I can´t write or restore. I look for threads here and couldn´t figure out the problem that I have.

So if Anyone could help me I appreciate a lot.

That is the dmesg, and the mt commands:
