Re: [SLUG] mt for backup to DAT tape


Thanks Mick,
that worked. mt installed now.

now i'm trying to figure out what device it is...
I have two DAT drives connected via SCSI.
the command
|mt -f /dev/st0 status
says no such file or directory.

Are these devices supposed to be detected on startup?
Or do I make the directories and then they will be detected, or different devices not st0 or st1?
I'm currently looking for info on this but any pointers greatly appreciated.

Ben

Hi Ben

you should be able to install the mt with

yum install mt
make that
yum install mt-st
It is in the base repo of CentOS 5.2
note this will need to be run as root
