Details

Updated tar packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 6.

The tar packages provide the GNU tar program. Gnu tar can allows to save
multiple files in one archive and can restore the files from that archive.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Prior to this update, tar failed to match and extract given file names from an
archive when this archive was created with the options "--sparse" and "--posix".
This update modifies the underlying code to match and extract the given name as
expected. (BZ#841308)

All users of tar are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix
this bug.

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata relevant
to your system have been applied.
