openSUSE-RU-2017:0924-1: Recommended update for fdupes
openSUSE Recommended Update: Recommended update for fdupes

Announcement ID: openSUSE-RU-2017:0924-1
Rating: low
References: #1005386
Affected Products:
openSUSE Leap 42.2
openSUSE Leap 42.1

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


This update for fdupes provides the following fixes and enhancements:

- Add new options: --nohidden, --permissions, --order, --reverse,
- Speed up file comparison.
- Fix bug where fdupes fails to consistently ignore hardlinks, depending
on file processing order, when F_CONSIDERHARDLINKS flag is not set.
- Using tty for interactive input instead of regular stdin. This is to
allow feeding filenames via stdin in future versions of fdupes without
breaking interactive deletion feature.
- Sort the output of fdupes by filename to make it deterministic for
parallel builds. (bsc#1005386)
