Subject: Problem with CYGWIN 1.5.13-1
I have tried to rebuild ROOT 4.03.02 (a CERN application) with CYGWIN
1.5.13-1 (with the previous 1.5.12-1 all worked fine).
When I try to unpack the source root_v4.03.02.source.tar.gz with
tar -xzvf root_....
it take long, long time. The CPU is working at 100% and I am constrained
to break it with C-Break.
After about 1 hour only 25% is unpacked! Normally (with Cygwin 1.5.12-1
and previous versions, it takes only 40-60 seconds!)
I have also made a downgrade to 1.5.12-1 to verify and it works fine.
To work with 1.5.13-1 I must, first, gunzip the root_v4...tar.gz file and
than I can untar it. In this way I can continue to rebuild the
Using tar -xzvf ... I have noticed that root_v4...tar.gz file contains
other *.tar.gz files (3).
When the unpacking process starts to unpack the first of these files
(in a sort of recursivity) it slows down much.
I repeat: the 1.5.12-1 does not give any of these problems!
I do not ask help for my application: I want only to point out a possible
conflict between CYGWIN 1.5.13-1 and "tar -xzvf file.tar.gz" in which
file.tar.gz contains others *.tar.gz files
