Issue with tar utility in RHEL5 on 64 bit PC

  • Thread starter GuruduttMarathe

Hi all,

I am trying to create a zipped tar file using 'tar' utility on RHEL5 CentOS.

On 32 bit PCs, there is no issue. However, on 64 bit PCs, the tar 'utility' randomly skips the subdirectories.


"tar zvcf rootfs/rootfs.tar.gz ."

The contents of the subdirectories are not being added to the tar file.
