Error with udev rules for scsi tape drive
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:12 EST
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):
It seems to happen every reboot.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Reboot a machine with a scsi tape drive and watch the messages.
Unexpected error message.
No unexpected error message.
what does the error message say?
The Screen-Lock-Key is your friend :-)
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
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.
