Re: tar not working correctly
Since version 1.22, GNU tar has changed his behavior about the way it
handle decompressors. This has caused a lot of problems, and there is
even a bug reported #532570.
However one problem is specific to GNU/kFreeBSD and can't be reproduced
on GNU/Linux. The following command now exits with a non-zero exit
value, as it is killed by a SIGPIPE:
cat test.tar.gz | tar -xvzf -
It would be nice if someone can find time to debug the problem.
It looks like "problem solved", I am just waiting for
"GNU tar 1.22 test suite" pass. It is not GNU/kFreeBSD specific.
E-mail to BTS will follow.
