    SubjectSCSI tape blocks > 128k ?
    I have to read SCSI tapes (DAT DDS1 this time) which have been written
    on non-Linux systems with blocksize >128k (512k right now, 1M possible too)
    but right now Linux (2.0) only supports up to 128k blocksize.

    is there any chance this will be changed in 2.1 or 2.3 ?

    if not, is there any possibility (and hopefully some tools available;)
    to access such devices from user space using generic scsi devices or similar ?

    I don't like the idea that Linux isn't possible to read pretty standard media
    from other OSs...
