Re: PROBLEM: restore file in tar from a magnetic tape

If I use the same tape and the same environment (OS and CPU
ALPHA EV6) i have observed:

    the system crash happens during rewind the tape; in fact if I
substitute /dev/st0
    with /dev/nst0 and so i don't active the "close" system call in
rewind mode, 3 times on 3
    tar file is restored.

    Now I want see what happens in controller's (QLOGIC ISP1020) driver
during the close.
    Someone has any ideas?

    Thank you
