While using GNU tar (lately 1.22) on Solaris I'm bumping often to following problem when extracting/testing multi-volume tar archives:

gtar tMf /mnt/test.tar

Prepare volume #2 for `/mnt/test.tar' and hit return: n /test.tar.2
gtar: Archive value -3654 is out of off_t range 0..9223372036854775807
gtar: Archive value -3654 is out of uintmax_t range 0..18446744073709551615
gtar: `usr/apache/tomcat55/classes/org/apache/catalina/core/ApplicationFilterChain.class' is not continued on this volume
Prepare volume #2 for `/test.tar.2' and hit return:


Any idea about that?

It might have something to do with available space on file system when creating first volume. It often helps to copy to that file system some random file before archive creation. Then the second archive can be extracted.

Note that I'm testing this with some small mounted UFS file system mounted on /mnt for the first volume where second volume for the rest of test data is stored on main file system with plenty of space.
