I’ve been given a patch to test. It changes the SCSI driver so that it will be slightly more like Linux and Solaris. I’m just documenting the patch process here so we can see what I’m doing, in case something goes wrong. This patch will allow us to open the tape drive, even if there is no tape, and keep querying until a tape arrives.

I’ve committed the code to the Bacula project’s test box and I’m waiting for their testing to commence.
