Subject: tar/bzip2 not working in chroot
Date: Wed, 13 Jul 2005 11:55:14 +0200

I am running an 2005.0 amd64 gentoo on my machine. Somehow the update from  
udev-059 to udev-062 broke my system (Does not populate /dev with devs for  
my SATA drives). But this is not about udev -- I just want to describe how  
I came across the tar problem.

However, I booted from 64bit Gentoo minimal 2004.1 CD (using the emachine  
mounted my drives
mounted proc
tried emerge =sys-fs/udev-059
no error message and nothing else happened after
>>> Unpacking udev-059.tar.bz2 to /var/tmp/portage/udev-059/work

so I aborted. I tried to untar manually. Same effect. Just nothing  
happens. The program does not abort or anything. CPU was idleing. Load was  
almost zero.

I exited from the chroot and tried to untar. Everything worked.
So i could finally recover my system by
untaring outside of the chroot and then ebuilding within the chroot.

After booting into my recovered system, I can untar the files and emerge  

Now the big question ... What is wrong vith the tar/bzip2 in my chroot?

The udev-059.tar.bz2 file of course resided in my distfiles directory.
Within and without the chroot I used the same udev-059.tar.bz2 file.
The portage directory is on a local reiserfs 3.6 disk.
