What command line options should I give to dump(8) to have it properly recognize the 2.0GB capacity of my SCSI Exabyte EXB-8200 tape drive with a standard 8mm data cartridge (365ft.). I have tried a few settings for
tape density, and every time dump(8) things the tape is not long enough to
contain the ~300MB I am trying to back up, and tries to do multi-volume
I have successfully tar'ed the whole filesystem onto the tape, but I'd like
to be able to do incremental backups using dump.
The system is a Pentium PC running Debian Linux v1.3
