Hi all!
I've got a scsi tape driver and i cant get the damn thing to work properly. I am building a script so it can make backups every night, but the problem is that i can't erase any data from the tapes.
I use taper and mt. I already tryed: mt /dev/st0 erase but this didnt work. The process turned into a zombie.

Any suggestions?
