Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 207825
tar confuses make rpm when compiling vanilla and fedora kernels
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:44 EST
Description of problem:
the reason is a tar error message which is created as a file
in the SPECS directory and this confuses the build process !!!
her the file name in the SPECS directory == "error message"
-rw------- 1 root root 0 Sep 24 01:29 tar: Pattern matching characters used
in file names. Please,
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
always with this version of tar.
I reinstalled the tar-1.15.1-12.2 (Fedora Core 5 rpm) and
everything works again !!!!

tar was downgraded to tar-1.15.1. It should be alright now.
