Description of problem:
The logical device tape is linked to the wrong nstX. Must be a small
type. Here is my "ls -l tape*" listing:

lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 5 Dec 14 01:53 tape -> nst0l
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 5 Dec 14 01:52 tape1 -> nst0a
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 5 Dec 14 01:53 tape2 -> nst0m
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 5 Dec 14 01:53 tape3 -> nst0a
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 4 Dec 14 01:53 tape4 -> nst0

tape needs to point to nst0.

This was probably present in the earlier version because I remember fixing

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install udev on a device with scsi tape
2.try to use /dev/tape device

and how did the fix look like? :)

Comment 2 Sammy 2004-12-14 15:36:20 UTC
Oh... I did it by hand!

But I had reported the request for the logical link in October and
you fixed it and it was working correctly until recently. Whatever
reads from udev.rules and makes the link changed some logic.

Does this fix your problem??

Comment 4 Sammy 2004-12-14 16:50:52 UTC
With that I get:

lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 4 Dec 14 04:48 /dev/tape -> nst0
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 4 Dec 14 04:48 /dev/tape1 -> nst0

this works for me since I only need this mode.
