- Subject: star and tape
Does someone here run star (ftp://ftp.berlios.de/pub/star/) in cygwin?
It works ok with files, but I have problems with tape.
If I call it as
star x --file=/dev/st0
It says permission denied.
If I call it as star x </dev/st0
It tries to do something, but it works very-very slow, really unacceptable.
Gnu tar works fine on the same machine.
