Description Neal Becker 2004-10-12 07:36:40 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.3; Linux) (KHTML, like Gecko) Description of problem: There is no /dev/nst0. I have a scsi tape unit. Until last updates this workaround was useable: modprobe st Now, this doesn't work either. IMHO, this must be fixed before release. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): udev-034-2 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. mt -t /dev/nst0 rewind 2. 3. Additional info:
Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2004-10-12 08:18:51 EDT
1. does "mt -t /dev/nst0 rewind" work after "/sbin/MAKEDEV -z nst0" ?? 2. does downgrading to a prior version of udev fix your problem
Comment 2 Neal Becker 2004-10-12 08:21:41 EDT
sudo /sbin/MAKEDEV -z nst0 /sbin/MAKEDEV: invalid option -- z
Comment 3 Harald Hoyer 2004-10-12 08:22:35 EDT
oops, I meant "/sbin/MAKEDEV -x nst0"
Comment 4 Neal Becker 2004-10-12 08:25:36 EDT
After /sbin/MAKEDEV nst0, I can access my tape unit fine. I am backing up right now.
Comment 5 Harald Hoyer 2004-10-12 10:50:40 EDT
please try udev-035-1, as soon as it appears in rawhide
Comment 6 Neal Becker 2004-10-13 12:47:38 EDT
OK, I have udev-035-1. It might be working. Not sure how to test. The tape appears to work, but I have /dev/nst0 already there before last boot. Should I try rm-ing it and see if udev creates it? Is that how things are suppoesed to work?
Comment 7 Harald Hoyer 2004-10-14 04:32:43 EDT
Ã®f you have a standard fedora 3 installation, a tmpfs is mounted on /tmp, so /tmp is gone after every reboot... :)
Comment 8 Neal Becker 2004-10-14 09:57:09 EDT
Wow, I have no idea what you're saying. 1. I _do_ have a new install of fc3t2, with all updates. There is no tmpfs mounted on /tmp. 2. What does this have to do with whether /dev/nst0 is created statically or dynamically?
Comment 9 Harald Hoyer 2004-10-14 10:27:02 EDT
really???? $ cat /proc/mounts|fgrep ' /dev'
Comment 10 Neal Becker 2004-10-14 10:30:19 EDT
I see, yes. Strange, 'mount' doesn't show this. Sounds like a bug in mount IMHO.
Comment 11 Harald Hoyer 2004-10-14 10:33:35 EDT
no... /etc/mtab was not there at the time /tmp was mounted... this happened in the initramfs phase... before "/" was mounted.
Comment 12 Harald Hoyer 2004-10-14 10:36:08 EDT
so, just reboot and all devices you see in /dev were created by udev..
Comment 13 Harald Hoyer 2004-10-20 06:58:43 EDT
Comment 14 Neal Becker 2004-10-20 07:07:03 EDT
Appears to be fixed. Thanks!
