Re: [ezjail] Ezjail is dead? (archiving problem)
BTW, just an idea. What about moving tar command line into ezjail.conf
file? Something like that
pack_command = "pax ..."
unpack_command = "pax ..."
I just noticed a port called star, it claims to support 1024 characters in
filename length: archivers/star:
Star is the fastest known implementation of a tar archiver.
Main advantages over other tar implementations:
fifo - Keeps the tape streaming.
pattern matcher - For a convenient user interface.
sophisticated diff - User tailorable interface for comparing tar
archives against file trees.
no namelen limitation - Pathnames up to 1024 Bytes may be archived.
deals with all 3 times - Stores/restores all 3 times of a file.
does not clobber files - More recent copies on disk will not be
clobbered from tape.
automatic byte swap - star automatically detects swapped archives.
automatic format detect - Automatically detects archive formats:
old tar, gnu tar, ansi tar, star.
fully ansi compatible - star is fully ANSI/Posix 1003.1 compatible.
It may end up unmaintained because it did not update for a long time, but anyway,
there are a lot of ports in archivers subdirectory and at least some of them are
suitable for jail archival.
