RE: HP Colorado 8Gb IDE



Hola linuxeros:-)

Hace algunas semanas yo mismo envie a la lista un mensaje parecido a
este que sigue pero en castellano:

> Hello:

> driveide-tape: Sorry, DRQ types other than Accelerated DRQ
> ide-tape: are still not supported by the driver
> ide-tape: the tape is not supported by this version of the driver
>

En debian-user-spanish me hecharon una manita e intente solucionar el
tema, pero no lo consegui. Entonces envie el mensaje anterior a Gadi
Oxman, que esta trabajando el el soporte de este tipo de dispositivos
y me contesto lo que sigue:

Ximo,

This tape drive is supported by the ide-tape driver in 2.0.35 and
above, but not in 2.0.34.

2.0.34 contains however an additional driver for IDE tapes. To enable
it, answer:

'n' to 'Include IDE/ATAPI tape support'
'y' to 'SCSI emulation support'
'y' to 'SCSI support'
'y' to SCSI tape support'

during the kernel configuration "make config" step. On boot, the drive
will be reported as a SCSI tape drive on /dev/st0.

Gadi


Un saludo.
Ximo. <mecasa@ctv.es>
