LinearTapeFileSystem seems to support quantum in the meanwhile. I can confirm, and please anyone with a quantum drive, please can you also confirm? See this issue on github: https://github.com/LinearTapeFileSystem/ltfs/issues/219

Here is a discussion (bug report) i started in the IBM repo. There is a lot of info inside, and we at least have product/vendor ids added now. Would be amazing if anyone could test with quantum drive. https://github.com/LinearTapeFileSystem/ltfs/issues/219#issuecomment-711160461

I have a working PKGBUILD for the IBM repo, pinned to the most recent tag. It relies on a hack that I'm not comfortable with, linking /usr/include/linux/sysctl.h to /usr/include/sys/sysctl.h.

If someone could build following these steps:

  • Clone the IBM repo
  • In the repo root, run ./autogen.sh followed by
./configure \
    --prefix=/usr \
    --sbindir=/usr/bin \
    --sysconfdir=/etc \
    --localstatedir=/var
  • Finally, call make

I expect you to get an error about sys/sysctl.h not being found at this point.

  • Make the symlink I mentioned above: sudo ln -sv /usr/include/linux/sysctl.h /usr/include/sys/sysctl.h, then call make clean and retry the steps above.

I haven't committed this workaround yet because I need to know that it works but I don't actually use this filesystem and have no way to test that it works. I find it a bit odd that there is not an already an issue logged about this error and I'm not able to find much about the error by googling except that "sys/sysctl.h" is deprecated! If someone can reproduce my error, I will log the issue upstream.

I am more that happy to continue maintenance on the package, but if there is someone out there who actually does use it and wants to take on maintenance, I will disown the package.

can't we possibly switch to this source and repo? https://github.com/LinearTapeFileSystem/ltfs

As of today the source is offline from quantum. I tweeted them, you can follow the status here: https://twitter.com/audiores/status/1312668272471535616
