Description Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-11-20 15:01:15 EST
When trying to uncompress archives, this happens a lot with 1.13.18-1
(this is an example with the gdb source archive shipped with Red Hat Linux 7):

[teg@halden src]$ tar Ixf /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/gdb-20000725.tar.bz2
tar: This does not look like a tar archive
tar: Skipping to next header
tar: 40 garbage bytes ignored at end of archive
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
[teg@halden src]$ rpm -q tar
[teg@halden src]$ rpm -q tar
[teg@halden src]$ tar Ixf /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/gdb-20000725.tar.bz2
[teg@halden src]$
Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-11-21 05:23:06 EST
They've changed the bzip2 option, it's now "j" rather than "I" for compatibility with Slowlaris.
I've mentioned this on the develdept list when I instrooted the new tar.
