FW: cygwin1 troubles
Mon Dec 20 09:31:00 GMT 1999
If this isn't the right list for this, I apologize and would appreciate
someone pointing me to the right list.
I'm trying to use cygwin1.dll with tape/tar support with a SCSI Quantum DLT
tape drive running under NT 4.0.
tar tvf /dev/rmt0
will list the contents of the tape, but when I try to extract or list
specific file names, as in
tar xvf /dev/rmt0 file1.bz2
tar tvf /dev/rmt0 file1.bz2
for files that are on the tape, the tape just reads to eot and then rewinds
and reads again and rewinds, repeating this forever and ever.
Why would I be able to list the contents but not list individual files or
extract any files at all? The files are extremely large wav files.
output of mount is:
Device Directory Type Flags
tape0 tape native text!=binary
Tape0 /tape0 native text!=binary
tape0 /mnt/tape native text!=binary
\\.\tape0 /dev/rmt0 native text=binary
d: /d native text!=binary
c: /c native text!=binary
C: / native text!=binary
Any ideas as to what I can do to get the files off this tape?
