Description Willem Riede 2004-12-23 08:29:59 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041111 Firefox/1.0

Description of problem:
Currently, the hotplug package supports st devices, but not osst devices (OnStream tape drives). It says "FIXME some tapes use 'osst' not 'st'"

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.load osst module

Actual Results:  no {n}osstX device nodes are created

Expected Results:  crw-rw----  1 root disk 206,   0 Dec 23 08:28 /dev/osst0
crw-rw----  1 root disk 206, 128 Dec 23 08:28 /dev/nosst0

Additional info:

This is one of a set of changes needed for sysfs/hotplug/udev support of osst. Another is bug 143568 on udev for the permissions to be assigned. The third is that the osst driver needs sysfs support - watch linux-kernel for that to be submitted next.

this patch will implement osst support for hotplug
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2004-12-23 16:35:27 EST
Does this actually *require* the sysfs changes in the driver to work?
Comment 3 Willem Riede 2004-12-23 19:05:34 EST
It is safe to make the proposed change, but it won't work (= actually create the
/dev nodes) until the osst driver is updated. I've got this working, and I'll be
submitting the osst patch to the linux-kernel and linux-scsi mailing lists soon.
Comment 4 Willem Riede 2005-01-03 08:53:06 EST
Required osst kernel patches are now in Andrew Morton's 2.6.10-mm1.
Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2005-02-07 17:37:32 EST
Please send upstream to linux-hotplug-devel@lists.sourceforge.net as well.
