    Hello all.

    I am trying to get ftape set up for a Trakker 250,
    the parallel port tape drive. I understand that, while
    this kernel (2.2.9) allows one to enable ftape, this
    built-in ftape does not work with the parallel port
    Trakker. I recompiled the kernel, selected "no" for
    the ftape, recompiled the modules and installed them.
    (also selected Y for paride.o ; I do not use the
    parallel port for printing and would like to have it
    set only for use with this tape drive...) I then installed
    the rpm 4.02-1 ftape package and rebooted. insmod ftape
    gives an error of "cannot find that module". Found the
    reason. The installation of this rpm package put ftape.o
    and the others modules in /lib/modules/2.0.35/misc/
    but my current modules are in /lib/modules/2.2.9/ .
    I tried rebuilding the package with the source
    rpm, but got the following error.
    Is there a painless workaround?
