Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 410231
st tape device /dev/st0l doesn't work anymore
Last modified: 2012-06-20 11:58:03 EDT
Description of problem:
Sometime in the last few releases /dev/st0l and /dev/nst0l
stopped working. Probably /dev/st0[am] and /dev/nst[am]
don't work anymore either.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
tar -f /dev/st0l
Variety of strange random messages in 'dmesg'.
Changes ever time. Here's a good one:
st0: Block limits 2 - 16777214 bytes.
(scsi0:A:0:0): Unexpected busfree in Command phase, 1 SCBs aborted, PRGMCNT ==
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Dump Card State Begins <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
scsi0: Dumping Card State at program address 0x197 Mode 0x11
Card was paused
It should work.
/dev/st0 work just fine. /dev/st0l *definitely* used to work.
Drive: Quantum VS160
SCSI: Adaptec 39320A
