Description of problem:
If you dump and then restore files with 32-bit UIDs, the restored files will not
have the appropriate ownership.
This is fixed the current version of dump released by Stelian Pop, which is
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a file and chown 10000000:10000000 that file
2. Run "dump 0f /tmp/test.dump file"
3. Restore the dump
Actual Results: The restored file will be owned by 38528:38528
Expected Results: The file should be owned by 10000000:10000000
0.4b34 does not compile on all architectures supported by Red Hat currently.
In particular it fails on AMD64, ia64 at least, and possibly other 64bit
Once dump compiles on x86/ia64/AMD64/ppc/ppc64/s390/s390x again, I'll update
to the latest version though, but it's low priority as dump is a priority
3 package. If this gets fixed upstream, it would expediate it getting updated
in the distribution however.
dump-0.4b33 in rawhide contains the fix for this problem.
