I just rebuilt my kernel with support for a new device and scsi card. The
added components are a Tekram DC390F Symbios Logic 875 Ultra Wide SCSI
Controller card and a Sony SDT-9000 4mm DDs-3 tape drive.
I compiled the kernel with scsi support and SYM53C8XX. The kernel
compiled fine and I already have the device:
/dev/st0, but nothing in fstab. I tried to add an entry in fstab like
/dev/st0 /mnt/st0 ext2 noauto 0 0
but when I try to mount /dev/st0 /mnt/st0, I get the error:
[root at wilfredgordon]# mount /dev/st0 /mnt/st0
mount: /dev/st0 is not a block device
Is there something I did wrong with the entry for fstab?
I checked for any faq's on tape drive installation with scsi cards but
found very little useful information. If anyone could point me to some
guides/help files, I'll appreciate it.
