tar seems to be misbehaving when used with the -T switch. If I run the
find somebigdir > /tmp/file-list
tar -cjf /tmp/tarball.tar.bz2 -T /tmp/file-list
I get no errors. However, when I go to unpack it:
tar -xyf /tmp/tarball.tar.bz2
I get several errors about files not found in the archive. It's always
the same files. I've checked to ensure there's nothing special about
If I try to create the same tarball without using a file-list:
tar -cjf /tmp/tarball.tar.bz2 somebigdir
I get no errors during unpacking. Running find on this unpacked set
confirms the file-list matches exactly that which I'm trying to use
with the -T switch. Unless I'm overlooking something obvious, I can
only conclude that tar's handling of -T is funky. Any suggestions?
I'm using a fresh installation of 7.2-RELEASE on amd64 installed from
