|Subject:||[Bug-tar] Bug in Tar ?|
|Date:||Wed, 22 Feb 2012 09:35:00 +0100|
I’m using « tar (GNU tar) 1.15.1” on Linux , and it seems that the owner option is not working :
I try to do the following command (as a root user) :
tar -xvf livre_20120221.tar --no-same-owner --owner=wwwrun --group=www
But, when the files are extracted, they all have root:root privileges (user:group) and so, I need to use the chown command.
This is not a big problem, but I would like to know if this is a bug or if I did not understand the syntax.
Or may be this is due to the fact that this wwwrun user is not a “real” user : in passwd file :
wwwrun:x:30:8:WWW daemon apache:/var/lib/wwwrun:/bin/false
PS : I’m writing to this address because at the end of the tar description, the following sentence is shown :
