Subject: cannot build 6.06 with cpan using external tar
Date: Thu, 17 Apr 2014 22:42:09 +0000
To: "bug-libwww-perl [...] rt.cpan.org" <bug-libwww-perl [...] rt.cpan.org>
From: Mark Hedges <Mark.Hedges [...] Ticketmaster.com>
Trouble building libwww-perl-6.06. Looks like a problem with these custom tags in the tar file. My system has an old version of tar (GNU tar 1.15.1). This is a fresh build of perl 5.18.2. I was able to install and use Bundle::CPAN using the `cpan` utility. I had prefer_external_tar set in CPAN::MyConfig. When I unset that to use Archive::Tar instead, the cpan utility worked to install libwww.

... This is a known issue when building tarballs on darwin. I can't remember the precise solution, but there are a *lot* of RT tickets about it if you search. It should be solvable by updating Archive::Tar::* I think (at least, I've never had it happen to me personally and I ship everything from darwin, and `which tar` returns /usr/bin/tar).

Like I said in the bug report, it works fine when using Archive::Tar. It does not work when prefer_external_tar is set in CPAN::MyConfig, which causes the CPAN utility to make system calls to `tar` instead. Mark Show quoted text

Ff you want to actually fix the problem instead of avoiding it, you simply need to set the following environment variables on Darwin to tell tar not to copy resource forks. export COPY_EXTENDED_ATTRIBUTES_DISABLE=1 # OS X 10.4 export COPYFILE_DISABLE=1 # OS X >= 10.5

Thanks for the note, but I tried the latter for OS X 10.9.3 and am still getting the error on untarring. Is there a different option for OS X > 10.9?
Re-bundled libwww 6.07 on Linux, the tarball issue should be fixed now.

I don't have either of those variables set, and I use darwin with no troubles. Are your Archive::* distributions up to date? Do you have Archive::Tar::Wrapper installed (it's optional, but better)?

I've got Archive::Tar 1.82. I can reproduce the bug by using "tar" to create a tarball, which then gnu tar can't untar. Archive::Tar::Wrapper on the other hand just uses the system "tar" underneath, so I think this will just run into the same problem.
