I have afbackup running on Slackware 8.0 with the
2.4.19pre1 kernel.

The tape library is a Quantum ATL M1500 with a SDLT320
drive.

My last full backup attempt contained the following error:

Error: Cannot get writing tape position, fatal: exiting.

This was repeated for each host I tried to back up. I
have previously completed successful backups, but this
one failed miserably. Any tips would be appreciated.
Thank you.
