foreign tape recognition
Fri Jun 15 13:12:00 GMT 2001
The problem I'm having is that the cygwin tar command isn't recognizing
tar tape made on a UNIX machine. The -c option works, but -t and -x
produce the following:
tar: /dev/nt0: Cannot read: Permission denied
tar: At beginning of tape, quitting now
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
Incidentally, this message appears whether or not I'm at the beginning
tape. Also, mt works on the tape, but dd fails. I read the online
its discussion of file permissions mentioned the chmod command. I
around a bit with it, but it wouldn't take /dev/nt0 (the directory onto
I've mounted my tape device--an Exabyte ESB) as an argument.
Thanks for your help.
