i have added the devices and drivers needed to run ftape. the drive itself is a seagate with travan tape. the os is redhat 6.1...
when i execute
#tar -cvf /dev/rft0 /home
as root i get the following error:
tar: /dev/rft0: No such device
tar: Error is not recoverable:exiting now
any ideas? this is my first time performing backups in linux so please be as clear as possible.
