Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 28483
/usr/bin/lesspipe.sh uses wrong tar flag to decompress *.tar.bz2 archives

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.0-0.99.23 i686)
/usr/bin/lesspipe.sh uses "tar tIvvf" to list a bzip2-compressed
tar file contents. The "I" flag no longer works with tar version 1.13.18,
which now needs the "j" flag.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. less some.tar.bz2
Actual Results: "some.tar.bz2" may be a binary file. See it anyway?
Expected Results: should have generated file listing of some.tar.bz2
we have a new tar package in rawhide which restores the old -I behavior.
I agree that this should be fixed for the next release, but until then...
