Description johan 2001-07-27 03:50:17 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 4.01; Windows 98) Description of problem: When unpacking a compressed archive from a SCSI tape tar hangs. How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create an archive with command 'tar cvzf /dev/nst0 file1 file2 ...' 2. Rewind tape 3. Unpack archive with command 'tar xvzf /dev/nst0' Actual Results: Tar will unpack the archive until it reaches the end of the archive where it will simply stop and just hang. A ^C brings back the prompt. The very last files of the archive are not unpacked. Expected Results: That all files are unpacked. Additional info: Using tar from the RH5.1 distribution in the RH7.0 installation will unpack the complete archive without any problems. Have not checked if this applies only for archives on /dev/nst0 or also for archives on regular files.
