Description David Kutálek 2012-11-12 13:26:49 UTC
Description of problem:

tar x -v -J -f ./sosreport-qaredhat.com-20121112055222-56b6.tar.xz --strip-components=2 '*/sos_logs/sosreport-plugin-errors.txt'
tar: */sos_logs/sosreport-plugin-errors.txt: Not found in archive
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors

Without --strip-components file matching works.

This is a regression from 6.3, probably introduced by fix of bug 841308.

How reproducible:

Always using command above

Steps to Reproduce:
1. use --strip-components together with file matching for extraction
Actual results:
