Description Toralf 2002-11-22 04:57:06 EST
Description of Problem:
mtx fails to eject tape on Qualstar TLS-4222, when issuing "mtx next" or "mtx

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How Reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. mtx -f /dev/sg0 first
2. mtx -f /dev/sg0 next
3. mtx -f /dev/sg0 unload

Actual Results:
First tape loaded, but never unloaded (not by "next", not by "unload") - the
loader will (and I quote) "happily sit there snapping the robot arm's claws
around thin air trying to grab a tape that's not there".

Expected Results:
First tape loaded; 1st tape unloaded and 2nd loaded; 2nd tape loaded.

Additional Information:
'mt offline' does not work.	

Tape may be unloaded via the library's front panel.

Toralf, does mtx refuse to eject tape with mtx-1.2.18? Unfortunately I
don't have such tape drive so I cannot test whether it's fixed or not.
Can you please test the latest mtx for me?
