Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 28810
Option I (for bz2 files..) dont work anymore..
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [fr] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.0 i686)
I got this output..
[root@gruyere /usr/src]# tar Ixvf MesaDemos-3.4.tar.bz2
tar: This does not look like a tar archive
tar: Skipping to next header
tar: 412 garbage bytes ignored at end of archive
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
zsh: exit 2 tar Ixvf MesaDemos-3.4.tar.bz2
But when I bunzip the file there is no problem. I can even tar xvf it
Steps to Reproduce:
1. found a tar.bz2 file
2. tar Ixvf file.tar.bz2
Actual Results: See above.
Expected Results: Tar should extract the archive from tar.bz2 file.
NOT A BUG... the option is now -j for bzipped files..
reopening since it's a doc bug in the man page, although lower priority since
it's fine in info and man is deprecated in favor of info, yadda yadda yadda
The -I option is still present, displays
useful usage message:
bash$ tar cIvf abc.tar.bz2 abc
tar: Warning: the -I option is not supported; perhaps you meant -j or -T?
Try `tar --help' for more information.
