Yeah, they work fine with GNU Tar, but not with the tar built into busybox-1.00pre5 and pre6. Sparc and mips netboots use busybox, and if I'm not mistaken, the livecds use busybox as well, so this could be a possible problem in those cases. --Kumba -- "Such is oft the course of deeds that move the wheels of the world: small hands do them because they must, while the eyes of the great are elsewhere." --Elrond -- gentoo-releng@g.o mailing list
