Xarchiver fails to handel .tar archives

Post#1 by BlackRider » 22 Jul 2011, 17:02

I have noticed that the version of Xarchiver provided by Porteus v1.0 at this date fails to open/extract .tar files created by conventional tools.

The same files can be opened as usual by the use of ark or good old CLI.

I would like to coment that Xarchiver is an app which is always buggy. Even the version found on Debian Stable has mayor quirks. May I suggest it to be dropped and sustituted by file-roller, if dependencies are not a nightmare?

You can use tar as "unpacker"
