Re: [Bug-tar] tar: Child died with signal 11

I am having the same problem with the original poster.

I'm using GNU tar 1.28 and gzip 1.6 from MacPorts.

The failure happens in both creation and extraction of combined tar & gzip:

$ sw_vers
ProductName:    Mac OS X
ProductVersion: 10.10.5
BuildVersion:   14F27

bash-3.2$ which tar gzip

$ tar -czf tarball.tgz folder  # failed silently (instantly returns)
$ tar -cf tarball.tar folder   # succeed
$ gzip tarball.tar             # succeed
$ tar -xzf tarball.tar.gz      # failed with tar: Child died with signal 11
$ unzip tarball.tar.gz         # succeed
$ tar -xf tarball.tar          # succeed

How does tar finds the gzip/gunzip/zcat binary to be used?

I only manipulate PATH to use GNU binaries without changing the links
in /usr/bin/
meaning that the links in /usr/bin/ still refer to Apple/BSD version

Please add me in the TO/CC since I'm not in the mailing list.
