Comment 1 gilgamesh2k 2013-08-07 13:56:33 EDT
When removed the fedora rpm and installed parallel-20130722 from gnu, no problem.
Comment 2 Golo Fuchert 2013-08-07 16:34:29 EDT
Up to Fedora 19, parallel uses the option --tollef, which was necessary when it was packaged for Fedora to prevent breakage of user scripts using moreutils-parallel. As the warning tells you, by using
$ parallel --gnu 
parallel behaves as expected and it works for your example. So, if you are using the fedora rpm, please use the gnu option. The gnu option will be the default from f20+.
Comment 3 gilgamesh2k 2013-08-07 17:06:07 EDT
Sorry for my needles bug report.
As it didn't work, I also tried the --gnu option, but entered only -gnu which lead to other errors, so I've concluded the package to be broken.
Next time I'll be more thorough, I promise.
