Problem Report

RPM Package:  mt-st-0.5-1.rpm

Problem:  When issuing `mt -f /dev/nst0 fsf 2` command to
          my scsi tape drive, it wouldn't wind the tape

Hardware: SCSI card - Adaptec 1540b using 1542 driver
	  DDS2 Tape Drive - ARCHIVE Python 28454-XXX Rev:
          4.44 (Sun)

Solution: Went to url below and obtained the latest mt,
          compiled and installed it.  Working fine now.



Extract from Readme file:

Changes in version 0.5b:
- corrected the bug that caused the command argument to be
ignored if option -f was used
- added #include <errno.h> to stinit.c (for glibc)
- density 0x45 (TR-4) added to known density list
