CP and CPIO Preserving Timestamps?
CP and CPIO are not properly preserving modification-time (using the
appropriate options) on my Debian sarge system (i686), upgraded from
Woody, and upgraded to the 2.6 kernel. CP and CPIO are each mangling
atime and ctime in different ways. Aptitude says the stuff I have
installed is current. Everything else I use seems to be working great
with the upgrade, and the 2.6 kernel really speeds things up. Is
something subtle broken in just my system, or is this actually a wider
problem? Debsums tells me nothing re cp and cpio (if I'm doing it right).
A Google groups search told me nothing.
