According to section 23.3.2 of 8.2.4 manual:
Also, some versions of GNU tar consider it
an error if a file is changed while tar is
copying it. There does not seem to be any
very convenient way to distinguish this
error from other types of errors, other
than manual inspection of tar's messages.
GNU tar is therefore not the best tool for
making base backups.
On my linux machine, gnu tar is the tar. Does
anybody have a suggestion as to where I can go
to get a tar that is not gnu?
Thanks in advance.
