Here's another issue I just ran into while trying to do just that, using tar: su-2.05b# tar xpPvfz <snip thousands of lines> x /usr/lib/libtacplus.so.2 x /usr/lib/libtacplus.so x /usr/lib/libutil.a x /usr/lib/libutil.so x /usr/lib/libypclnt.a x /usr/lib/libypclnt.so.2 x /usr/lib/libypclnt.so x /usr/lib/libalias.a x /usr/lib/libalias.so x /usr/lib/libarchive.a x /usr/lib/libarchive.so.2Bus error: 10 (core dumped) I take it the core dump occured because I was trying to overwrite a lib that was in use by tar, right? Is there a good way around this?
