Re: [opensuse] Tar Read volume label only

Hi,

Might be a simple one. I have a tape with no sticky label and I want to
read the volume label which was set with --label="volumelabel" when the
archive was written

I could do tar -tvf /dev/st0 to get the table of contents which has the
volume label at the top.

e.g.

V--------- 0/0    0 yyyy-mm-dd 00:00 volumelabel--Volume Header--
files list here


But is there a way just to read ONLY the volume label with tar?


Not directly, but

tar --test-label --verbose --file=/dev/st0 foo

should print actual label and complain that it is different.
