Hello again,

I've been trying on this for more than two weeks now, but still not the
slightest progress. Any hint would really be appreciated. So, if anyone has
an idea on this, please let me know...

Betreff: [Linux-parport] external streamer on /dev/pt0

Hi all,

I'm trying to configure my external HP Travan 14GB streamer using paride.
This is what I've managed to to so far:

tux:/dev# modprobe paride
tux:/dev# modprobe epat
tux:/dev# modprobe pt

Modules are being loaded and device /dev/pt0 is being created, but not
/dev/npt0. dmesg says:

paride: epat registered as protocol 0
pt: pt version 1.04, major 96
pt0: Sharing parport0 at 0x378
pt0: epat 1.02, Shuttle EPAT chip c6 at 0x378, mode 5 (EPP-32), delay 1
pt0: HP COLORADO 14GBe, master, blocksize 512, 2458 MB

Looking good so far, but what's next? I tried to retrieve the status of the
device, but this is just not working. Tape is not even accessed.

tux:/dev# mt -f /dev/pt0 status
/dev/pt0: Invalid argument

Any ideas? I think I'm pretty close to the solution, so if anyone could help
