Description Karsten Hopp 1999-12-03 09:18:48 EST
There's a new bug in release 13 of cpio. If you write an archive with
verbose-mode, the filedescriptor 1 will be closed and after that the
filename should be written to this descriptor.
Try this:
echo /etc/passwd | strace cpio -ocvB >/dev/null

The last few lines will look like this:

==>	close(1)                                = 0
==>	write(1, "/etc/passwd\n", 12)           = -1 EBADF (Bad file

Comment 1 Karsten Hopp 1999-12-04 08:36:59 EST
Should be an easy fix.
Shanged priority to 4high4, because several backup-systems rely on
the output of the filename after writing the archive.
(Return value is not valid on every system)

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 1999-12-17 13:52:59 EST
I believe that this problem is fixed by reverting the stdout patch (#3358)
that has been done in cpio-2.4.2-14. Please reopen this bug if I'm wrong.

Ok, it's fixed.
