This is the output I get. Not sure how to decipher it:
z8:/home/kurtl/tmp# mt -f /dev/st0 status
SCSI 2 tape drive:
File number=0, block number=0, partition=0.
Tape block size 0 bytes. Density code 0x25 (DDS-3).
Soft error count since last status=0
General status bits on (41010000):
BOT ONLINE IM_REP_EN
Regarding the card/drive/kernel/etc, it's an HP Surestore DAT 24 internal
drive connected to an adaptec 2940UW SCSI card on a computer running Woody w/
2.4.12 kernel with SCSI support compiled as a module.
Still beating my head against the wall trying to figure this out, so any help
is certainly appreciated.
