Description of problem:
* I do not know how the communication between different linux distributions
about bugs works.
I have posted the above error to CentOS, and if it is an error, its your error
* For error details see therefore the following link:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
* Honestly, i must admit, the error appeared only in a recompiled version from
your "tar-1.19-3.fc9.src.rpm" -- but i did not test your binary.
Steps to Reproduce:
Thanks for report and proposed solution, it is obviously a bug in xattrs patch. Looking to centos bugreport, there is no need to patch extract.c.mangling - as this is just backup of the file after patch. Fixed RAWHIDE, tar-1.20-5.fc11 , will do updates for F-10 and F-9.
tar-1.20-5.fc10 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 10.
tar-1.19-6.fc9 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 9.
tar-1.20-5.fc10 has been pushed to the Fedora 10 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
tar-1.19-6.fc9 has been pushed to the Fedora 9 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
If you want to test the update, you can install it with
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing-newkey update tar'. You can provide feedback for this update here: http://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/F9/FEDORA-2008-10346
tar-1.19-6.fc9 has been pushed to the Fedora 9 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
