Description Péter, Soós 1999-06-17 10:29:52 EDT
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 10:40:59 EDT
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 08:09:59 EDT
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 11:40:59 EST
It works here in the lab if you give it the right partition number...
