Wrong options order for tar

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: ciaranm
Priority: MinorRelease Milestone:
Component: clients/paludis Version: 0.18.1
Keywords: tar Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:


When extracting distfiles, paludis gives options for tar in wrong order. In my case it leads to tar waiting input from stdin. Example: # paludis -i world [snip]

Starting src_unpack Unpacking tzdata2007b.tar.gz to /var/tmp/paludis/sys-libs/timezone-data-2007b/work

tar zxf /usr/portage/distfiles/tzdata2007b.tar.gz --no-same-owner

[waits forewer]

Should be: tar xzf

# tar --version tar (GNU tar) 1.16.1

Uh, I don't think that's your problem. I think you have a broken gzip. If you do a ps auxww | grep gzip , do you see gzip -dc -dc -dc -dc ... repeating itself?

You are right - it's broken gzip. Somehow I messed up while finding cause. Please close.
