Description Bruno Wolff III 2007-08-10 17:08:26 EDT
Description of problem: Recently I started seeing a udev error message during boot referring to a scsi tape device. This happens on two different computers. On one that also has a ups, the ups isn't recognized by nut (service ups) during the boot, but unplugging and replugging the ups usb cable and restarting the service fixes it. I don't know if that problem is related, but it started happening about the same time as I noticed the error message about the scsi tape device. I don't have the exact error message as i can't find it in any log files and it scrolls off the screen before I can do anything to copy it. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): udev-113-9.fc7 How reproducible: It seems to happen every reboot. Steps to Reproduce: 1. Reboot a machine with a scsi tape drive and watch the messages. 2. 3. Actual results: Unexpected error message. Expected results: No unexpected error message. Additional info:

what does the error message say?
Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2007-08-11 07:55:19 EDT
The Screen-Lock-Key is your friend :-)
Comment 3 Bruno Wolff III 2007-08-11 10:33:28 EDT
Thanks, I didn't know that you could pause the screen during boot. The error message is (warning: copied by hand): Starting udev: udev-event: node_symlink: symlink(../../nst0, /dev/tape/by-id/scsi--nst.udev-tmp) failed: Not a directory
Comment 4 260795 2007-08-20 03:36:35 EDT
I have the same problem here. It looks like a link from /dev/tape to nst0, as needed for example by mt, is first created and then of course a /dev/tape/ directory can't exist. I tried manually deleting the /dev/tape link just to see what happens, but it simply gets recreated again.
