Description

LSAC(v2)
The mt-st package contains the mt and st tape drive management programs. Mt (for magnetic tape drives) and st (for SCSI tape devices) can control rewinding, ejecting, skipping files and blocks and more. This update fixes the following bug: * Prior to this update, it was not possible to use a symbolic name for the SILI bit on the command line; the bit could only be specified as a hexadecimal constant (0x4000). With this update, users can use the "sili" symbolic name on the command line. (BZ#501014) All users of mt-st are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
