URGENTLY need some help with a problem that (to me anyway) makes NO
Several people on this list helped me out a while back with getting my
HP Colorado 5GBe parallel port atapi tape drive working under Redhat 6.2
on my laptop...
All *seemed* to be going well until it turns out that there is no way I
can actually ERASE or back up over archives written to the tape (whether
it be using DUMP or TAR or whatever...)
In order to fix this problem someone recommended that I try installing
TAPER because it can apparently work in 'raw mode' and can do a few of
the things I want it to do...
ANYWAY - I installed taper - and NOW I cannot do ANYTHING with the tape
backup - the usual sequence of:
insmode pt drive0=0x378,0 verbose=1
NO LONGER WORKS:-((((
- parport loads, paride loads, epat loads and THEN when I try to load
'pt.o' I get:
'/lib/modules/2.2.16-3/misc/pt.o: init_module: Device or resource busy'
Considering the time and effort it took to get the tape drive working in
the first place I'd REALLY appreciate some help to work out what has
Apart from installing TAPER (6.9a-2 - the one that comes with the
original Redhat 6.2 distribution cd) the only other change I've really
made to the system (laptop) since originally getting the tape drive to
work was upgrading from kernel 2.2.14-5 to 2.2.16-3...
