Question afio and multiple volumes


Hello,

I wanted to backup stuff using afio, the backup uses more than on tape (/dev/tape), after the first tape is "full" afio prompts for another tape, but when i restore the backup i get "unexpected [EOF] at the end of the first tape and afio exits (doesnīt ask for the other tape).
Is there a special option to restore from multiple volumes?

I used find . -print | afio -o -v /dev/tape to backup and
afio -i -v /dev/tape to restore.

thanks,
tiuz

Unhappy afio and the "-s 0" option

Hello,

I have used to use the -s 0 option, but when i use this with the tape drive i donīt get the prompt for the second tape just the "unexpected [EOF].

And when i use this with a floppy for example i get the prompt for the other diskette but with lotīs of error messages:
afio: "/dev/fd0" [offset 2m+265k+0]: Input/output error
afio: "/dev/fd0" [offset 2m+270k+0]: Input/output error
afio: "/dev/fd0" [offset 2m+275k+0]: Input/output error
afio: "/dev/fd0" [offset 2m+280k+0]: Input/output error

afio: "/dev/fd0" [offset 2m+355k+0]: Input/output error
afio: "/dev/fd0" [offset 2m+360k+0]: Input/output error
.......

Maybe something went wrong while compiling afio...
