Sometimes when I’m installing some directly from AUR using “yaourt foo”, I receive the following error message by BSDTAR as it tries to build the app:
“==> Retrieving sources…
-> Found foo.zip
==> Extracting sources…
==> Entering fakeroot environment…
==> Starting package()…
bsdtar: Error opening archive: Unrecognized archive format
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().
The file-format that caused this specific error was, as you can see, a .zip archive.
(I can’t seem to figure out how to embed that in [code] tag in these forums, so I’m apologize if there’s a way to do that I just can’t seem to find.
Anyway, here’s what I’d like to know:
- Is there a way to give BSDTAR the ability to extract .zip files? How about others, .rar, 7z, etc?
- Is there a method to replace BSDTAR with something else that would be able to handle many more archive extensions?
Thanks a lot!
