openSUSE Recommended Update: tar: fix archiving of offline files

Announcement ID: openSUSE-RU-2012:0197-1
Rating: important
References: #737331
Affected Products:
openSUSE 11.4

An update that has one recommended fix can now be
installed. It includes one version update.


The previous update of tar caused accessing files that are
offline (where non-blocking read fails with EAGAIN) to be
no longer archived. This update reverts the change to
non-blocking mode, which avoids this issue.

To install this openSUSE Recommended Update use YaST online_update.
Alternatively you can run the command listed for your product:

- openSUSE 11.4:

zypper in -t patch tar-5595

To bring your system up-to-date, use "zypper patch".

Package List:

- openSUSE 11.4 (i586 x86_64) [New Version: 1.26]:
