Ok, I was getting to it. I was in the middle of updating to tar-1.22
on my host system, and it all works fine now with the new tar.
-Jxf workz, -xf works with tar-1.22
I don't use a distro. I've been using LFS/BLFS for 7 years now, and
it's sheer joy to use. I don't think I could ever go back to a distro.
My present LFS/BLFS is based on a hybrid LFS-6.3/SVN version
The tar-1.19 I used, I built following the instructions in
SVN-20080412). And, yes, the md5sum matches the md5sum given in
SVN-20080412. I downloaded it from the link in SVN-200802412.
These are all the packages I used in my LFS system:
linux-2.6.25 API headers
I'm afraid I can't give you the output of tar --help from tar-1.19
since I've just now upgraded to tar-1.22 and deleted the previous
install of tar-1.19.
Incidentally, LFS-7.2 will be the 5th LFS system I'm building. My
present LFS/BLFS system is the second full working LFS/BLFS system
that I've built and that I use daily for my work (as I said it's a joy
to use). I've built three complete working LFS systems. I almost
finshed building the fourth (hybrid LFS-6.7/SVN) but it took me so
long, when I got as far as just before installing the bootscripts I
wiped it, and decided to start afresh with 7.2.
