I am trying to figure out whether or not I can run a Seagate dds-4
STD2401LW tape drive under freebsd...say 6.0. Or any version for that
matter. I am really not sure how to go about trying to see if a piece
of hardware unless it is a NIC or a SCSI/RAID/SATA controller that is
explicitly listed in the hardware notes for each version will work. I
am pretty sure that I am not suppose to assume that it will not work if
it is not listed there..am I? Does this drive fall under the 'sa'
(sequential access) driver that is loaded automatically?
I am currently trying to find a tape drive to do db backups on, so I do
not have the hardware yet to test this. So, I hope that there is a way
to determine that this will work or not other than actually installing it.
More information is located here about that drive:
