CONFIG_CHR_DEV_OSST: SCSI OnStream SC-x0 tape support

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_CHR_DEV_OSST:

Help text

The OnStream SC-x0 SCSI tape drives cannot be driven by the standard st driver, but instead need this special osst driver and use the /dev/osstX char device nodes (major 206). Via usb-storage, you may be able to drive the USB-x0 and DI-x0 drives as well. Note that there is also a second generation of OnStream tape drives (ADR-x0) that supports the standard SCSI-2 commands for tapes (QIC-157) and can be driven by the standard driver st. For more information, you may have a look at the SCSI-HOWTO and Documentation/scsi/osst.txt in the kernel source. More info on the OnStream driver may be found on Please also have a look at the standard st docu, as most of it applies to osst as well.

To compile this driver as a module, choose M here and read Documentation/scsi/scsi.txt. The module will be called osst.
