<h1><a href="http://fink.sourceforge.net/news/#2007-03-04%20Problems%20with%20tar">Problems with tar</a></h1>
<p>Some users of fink's unstable tree are having sporadic difficulties
at the end of building large packages, getting reports like
tar: File changed as we read it which causes the .deb file
not to be built.
The fink team is currently studying this problem to determine a permanent
fix. For the time being, users experiencing this problem can work around
it by issuing the command fink install tar-1.15.1-14. It
may be necessary to issue that command after each fink update-all
command, as well.
</p><p>Once the fink team has determined how to solve this problem
permanently, another announcement will be made here.
<p> Update: 16 March 2007: The new version of fink's
dpkg package resolves this problem. Unstable users can
now run the update commands normally.
