Description proux 1999-06-15 11:18:59 EDT
All files from http://www.idris.fr/bug/beta.tar are not well
extracted in linux compare to aix or irix tar.
The
Bernard.Pichon.20Juin96-f2000-propositions-francaises.ps.gz
file is extract to the current directory on linux but is
extract on htdocs/su/Nouveautes/seminaires/annee_9596/
elsewhere !
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-06-15 12:34:59 EDT
There are two similarly named files in your beta.tar file.
Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 1999-06-15 12:40:59 EDT
Woops, solaris /bin/tar verifies a real problem here.
Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 1999-06-15 14:36:59 EDT
Fixed (by upgrading) in tar-1.12-10.64011. Thanks for the test case.
Comment 4 Brock Organ 1999-09-10 16:06:59 EDT
QA testing for tar-1.13.11-1.i386.rpm: (lorax)

Correct behavior shown for this test case:
# tar xf beta.tar
# find . -name
Bernard.Pichon.20Juin96-f2000-propositions-francaises.ps.gz
./htdocs/su/Nouveautes/seminaires/annee_9596/Bernard.Pichon.20Juin96-f2000-propositions-francaises.ps.gz
