Description sasha 1999-02-19 18:30:26 UTC
mt -f /dev/nst0 fsf 1(2,3,etc)
mt -f /dev/nst0 retension
yield no result.

the same problem experienced with mt-st versions 0.5-2 and
0.5b-1 downloaded from RawHide-1.0. mt-st version 0.4-5,
which is a part of RH 5.1 distribution, does work.

my system is as follows
- i686 (PII-400)
- DPT PM2044UW Ultra Wide SCSI controller
- HP C1537A SureStore DDS-3 DAT24 tape drive
running stock RH 5.2 with kernel upgraded to 2.0.36-1
