Description Péter, Soós 1999-06-17 14:29:52 UTC
I have an internal SCSI zip drive, but mzip can't handle it.
The setting in my mtools.conf looks like:
drive z: file="/dev/sdc" partition=4 scsi=1 nodelay

The mzip -r z: command results a similar error message:
mzip: open(stat): No such file or directory

Comment 1 Alan Cox 1999-06-18 14:40:59 UTC
Using scsi=1 expects the relevant scsi generic device. Using
scsi=0 file=/dev/sdc4 should be fine

Comment 2 Péter, Soós 1999-06-28 12:09:59 UTC
The solution above not helps. The error message is:
mzip: stat(none) failed: No such file or directory

Comment 3 Cristian Gafton 2000-02-09 16:40:59 UTC
It works here in the lab if you give it the right partition number...
