#6649 closed defect (obsolete)

Busybox tar: corrupted octal value in tar header

Reported by: d.guerri@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: base system Version: Kamikaze 8.09
Keywords: corrupted octal value in tar header Cc:


Attempts to extract tar files generated with snowleopard tar fail using tar busybox applet with the following error:

tar: corrupted octal value in tar header

I'm also having problems with tars generated in Linux/Debian with libarchive.

According to this thread a workaround is to enable FEATURE_TAR_OLDGNU_COMPATIBILITY in busybox configuration (turned off by default).

It seems that this "bug" has been corrected in busybox (without enabling FEATURE_TAR_OLDGNU_COMPATIBILITY) with this patch but the version used in kamikaze 8.09.2 still doesn't support osx tars.

Could you please include Denys Vlasenko's patch in kamikaze 8.09.2 ?
