Solaris tar does not work with Twisted tarball
|Reported by:||damon_register||Owned by:|
I was trying to build Twisted on Solaris 10 with no luck. After a lot of time I discovered that the Solaris tar was not correctly expanding the Twisted tarball. A coworker had run into similar problems with Solaris tar on other things. Perhaps other users would have figured it out faster than I did but it surely would save some trouble for others if the link for the source tarball had next to it a warning about the Solaris tar. Using gtar I was able to build Twisted on Solaris 10 with no trouble.
