Tool for controlling tape drives
The mt-st package contains the mt and st tape drive management
programs. Mt (for magnetic tape drives) and st (for SCSI tape devices)
can control rewinding, ejecting, skipping files and blocks and more.
Install mt-st if you need a tool to manage tape drives.
This directory contains two programs; mt and stinit. Mt is basically
a "standard" mt with additional commands to send the ioctls specific
to the Linux SCSI tape driver. The source supports all SCSI tape
ioctls up to kernel version 2.6.0 but it can also be compiled in
kernels >= 2.0.x (and hopefully with 1.2.x). Although this mt program
is tailored for SCSI tapes, it can also be used with other Lin
The program stinit is meant for initializing of SCSI tape drive modes
at system startup, when the tape driver module is loaded, or when new
tape drivers are initialized using
echo "scsi add-single-device x y z v" >/proc/scsi/scsi
or (with 2.6 kernels)
echo "y z v" > /sys/class/scsi_host/hostx/scan
where x=host y=channel z=id v=lun (- is wild card for 2.6).
