Description Nerijus Baliūnas 2006-04-12 14:13:55 UTC
I have a commercial application which I cannot install, as it uses
/bin/tar -xf $cdPathDir/IMAGES.DIR/FS.0 ./install/tmp -b1 2>/dev/null
I get:
/bin/tar: -b1: Not found in archive
/bin/tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

It works if I move "-b1" to the beginning:
/bin/tar -b1 -xf $cdPathDir/IMAGES.DIR/FS.0 ./install/tmp 2>/dev/null

IMHO it is a regression. It works with tar-1.13.25.

Comment 3 Nerijus Baliūnas 2006-04-25 23:55:08 UTC
tar-1.15.90-1.FC5 fixes it.
