Phew! Finally got my HP 5GB tape drive working on my RH 6.0 system.
I'm very happy. :-)
One question: Does anyone have a recommendation for the most preferable
backup utility to use? I've been playing with tar and it is very slow,
which is probably inherent to this type of media.
I am now trying 'dump' and having some problems getting it to realize
there is plenty of space on the device. I had to use the command:
dump 0us 42600 -f /dev/pt0 /usr2
to get it calculate < 1 tape volume. I take it the EOT auto detect in
'dump' doesn't work on the Linux version? Maybe because of the device?
Anyway, any advice on a better command line for 'dump' or a better
utility would be greatly appreciated.
