Description Marco Ferragina 2005-06-24 17:33:01 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; it-IT; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
Good: options --exlude and --exlude-from simply no more work.
When I try to make a tar archive with one of this options, files listed after --exlude option are not exluded from archive how it does in fedora core 3

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create two files: Example test blah
2. create tar archive: tar -cjf test.tar.bz2 * --exclude=blah
3. Cannot stat: No such file or directory

Additional info:

Try creating your archive with "tar cjf test.tar.bz2 --exclude=blah *" 
That WFM, tar-1.15.1-5
Comment 2 Marco Ferragina 2005-06-26 04:35:07 EDT
Thanks, it also works with tar --exclude=blah -cjf test.tar.bz2 *
It's not a bug ;) simply a new syntax from previous version
