Tar-1.20, as shipped by F10 question


Has fedora, in the patches applied to the tar-1.20 rpm, managed to make it 
ignore the passed option "--no-device-check' & do it without reporting an 
error?  I can see the option being passed to it in the htop display when its 
running so I have to assume its getting to the tar invocation ok.

I have all the symptoms of that duck waddling thru my system since the device-
mapper-multipath rpm update was done a few days ago.

When fedora decides to re-write the udev rules (or whatever does the disks on 
the system to enumerate them in the /dev directory) then tar gets a tummy ache 
and every byte on the system is suddenly brand new _unless_ the above option 
is being honored.  That means amanda needs about 7-10 runs to get caught up 
again and run somewhere near normally for incrementals.


Cheers, Gene
