Ok... More info for the puzzle.....
I'm trying to move a file system from one disk to another, and when I do
tar cf - /source/* | ( cd /destination && tar xfv - )
It copies all the files, but the symbolic links are copied as files of 0
length, rather than re-established as links.
When I just:
tar -cf file.tar /source/*
tar -xf file.tar
Then the symbolic links are made correctly.... Any reason why this should
work and not the piped version for 'all in one' copying?
