incremental archives with stored ACLs
Last modified: 2010-05-06 09:45:21 EDT
Description of problem:
Currently it's impossible to create incremental archive with ACLs stored.
tar -c --acls --listed-incremental=1.star -f 1.tar.gz <files>
tar: GNU features wanted on incompatible archive format
Try `tar --help' or `tar --usage' for more information.
Thanks for report/future feature request.
Not only that commit - that's only part of the more upstream commits (that's the final one) to support several gnu options in POSIX format ... Changes are too invasive for RHEL-5.
This was once requested in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=555391 . http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/tar.git/commit/?id=aea1d50da919e8649e6eb7ae849db2511e3636f1 , http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/tar.git/commit/?id=f6458a827ae7a2c41616490f653714068072b257 and probably more commits are necessary to prevent reports of invalid functionality of listed-incremental options in POSIX format in RHEL-5. Closing WONTFIX, if you really need these GNU features with --acls options (in POSIX tar format), please contact product support at www.redhat.com/support - as backporting all the changes to support these options in POSIX format would need a bit of time and extensive testing.
Closing DUPLICATE of 555391.
