"ltfs /tmp/lto5" and "ltfs -o devname=/dev/st0 /tmp/lto5" are equivalent, at least for the HP tools (I haven't looked at the Quantum tools).
From "ltfs -h":
Code:
-o devname=<dev>          Tape device (default: /dev/st0)
I tried it just to be sure and I still got the same error.

Shame. We may just stick with mt/tar for the time being.

Strange... maybe try the Quantum instead of HP source. You do want LTFS...
Did you try another tape in the drive? I have found an occasional bad tape here.

I compiled LTFS on Ubuntu 12.04 but get the same error as arjanvl. I'm also about to go down the CentOS route... company policy here is Ubuntu/Debian also, so it's a little annoying. Well when I say policy I just wanted to keep everything Debian based. I can't really be bothered to look into it further, it's enough hassle as it is to get it compiled on Ubuntu.

I might look into it some other time and release a .deb to save people bother.

Talking

In case anyone stumbles across this looking for a Debian solution:

Code:
PKG_CONFIG=/usr/bin/pkg-config ./configure
This worked for me on Debian Squeeze without having to mess about with any packages.

Looks legit, but kernel versions between Debian Squeeze and Ubuntu 12.04 are different.
Debina Squeeze = 2.6.32
Ubuntu 12.04(1) = 3.2.0-26

If I have some spare time, and a system to test on, I'll try to compile that way. If anyone has time before me, please share

Question Ubuntu 12.04 LTS LTFS

Hi all,

I'm trying to use LTFS on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS...

After that in terminal:
Code:
cd qtmltfs/ && ./configure && make && sudo make install
I'm getting that:
Code:
checking for genrb... no
configure: error: genrb was not found
Any help would be appreciated

cheers

#21, @Trumanus : Welcome to LQ.

"cd qtmltfs/" : Are you quite sure ? It's usually like "qtmltfs-1.2.0/".

? Which qtmltfs version is it about ? ?
( For version `1.2.0' please see post #3.)

"configure: error: genrb was not found" :
The file /usr/bin/genrb is provided by libicu-dev

I'm not sure which version it is, I don't have access to that computer right now, but it was downloaded few days ago from quantum web site.
But, same story goes for gtmlfs-1.2.0

You think that there is something wrong with libicu-dev ?

You will find that out when you have installed `libicu-dev'.

Read post #3.
