multi volume dump does not work
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:55 EDT
The dump that comes with RH6.2 (dump-0.4b15-1) barfs on multi volume sets.
Simple upgrade to dump-0.4b16-1 makes it work fine.
The problem is that dump-0.4b15-1 doesn't completely close the tape drive,
so it can't reopen the drive. Where can one find dump-0.4b16-1?
