Description Michal Jaegermann 2005-07-12 16:36:20 EDT
Description of problem:

Bug #155751 and bug #156314 describe problems detailed in CAN-2005-1111
and CAN-2005-1229.  This is different than bug #152891.  A version of cpio
with these fixed is included in FC4 set.

For RHEL 7.3 there is a new source package at
with two patches "ported" from cpio-2.6-7 (FC4).  This changes semantics.
An old '--no-absolute-filenames' is still recognized, although not documented,
but this is a default which can be changed with new '--absolute-filenames'.

These issues affect all other versions of cpio below 2.6-7.
Comment 1 David Eisenstein 2007-04-11 20:36:10 EDT
Red Hat Linux and Fedora Core releases <=4 are now completely unmaintained.
These bugs can't be fixed in these versions.  If the issue still persists in
current Fedora Core releases, please reopen.  Thank you, and sorry about this.
