tape library for Linux


I need something like 1/9 or 2/20 with Ultrium drive. Is it possible to use this libraries with Linux? Is it possible to control robotics mechanism with mtx?

Re: tape library for Linux


We have a 2/20 installed with Linux. The LTO drives are supported in Linux provided that it is a recent version. You will need to make some modifications which are described at

I believe mtx works with this model although I have not used it myself with this model of library.

best regards,
