Note, that these OCO-modules will most certainly not match any other (earlier or later) Red Hat distribution, nor any other distribution.
These RPMs contain the re-compiled versions of tape_3590 OCO-modules for RHEL AS 3 kernel 2.4.21-15.0.4, functionally equivalent to the previous (2004-07-13, 2004-07-05, 2004-05-28, 2004-03-09, 2004-02-16, 2003-11-14, and 2003-10-31) OCO-modules for Red Hat Enterprise Linux Advanced Server 3.
In the 2.4.21-15.0.4.EL Red Hat kernel several IBM bug fixes for tape-infrastructure are missing.
Therefore, do not set fixed block sizes to tape devices, since this can lead to system crashes.
