How to mount LTFS tape? (LTO-6 drive)

Hi,

My new Dell PowerVault LTO-6 has just arrived and I have successfully connected it with the SAS controller.

Searching the web I found this. However in openSUSE I can’t find any command/tool for managing LTFS. I searched for ‘ltfs’ in the package manager of YaST but no results whatsoever.

What should I do to use LTFS?

Hi
Build it yourself? https://oss.oracle.com/projects/ltfs/

Google returns quite some hits for “ltfs linux download”? E.g. Quantum offers both source code and precompiled binaries. Oracle also offers LTFS implementation. To name few.

Thanks for the info.

I wasn’t aware it is something one has to build or install from external source. I was hoping that as other open file systems it is included in the distro in some way.

There is only one way - it needs to be packaged it and submitted for inclusion. You have great chance to contribute by doing it.

So which one is for me?

I have no idea how to do that.
