#8583 new Bugs

tar attempts to change ownership to invalid uid.

Reported by: akf@… Owned by:
Milestone: To Be Determined Component: Building Boost
Version: Boost 1.52.0 Severity: Problem
Keywords: Cc:


When running as root, untaring the boost package using gentoo prefix on Interix v3.5 for Windows XP fails with:

Cannot change ownership to uid 501, gid 0: Invalid argument

This is solved by running tar with flags:

"--user root --no-same-owner"

This issue is unique to boost .tar.gz files and blocks any installation by gentoo emerge.

The work around only needs --no-same-owner
