failed archiving symlinks

  • Hisham H. Muhammad

    Hi there,

    I tried to archive a directory tree containing symbolic links, and 7za failed with:

    7-Zip (A) 4.12 beta  Copyright (c) 1999-2004 Igor Pavlov  2004-11-18
    p7zip Version 4.12 (locale=en_US,Utf16=off,HugeFiles=on)

    Creating archive Qt--3.3.3--i686.7z

    Compressing  Qt\3.3.3\bin\assistant
    Compressing  Qt\3.3.3\mkspecs\default                                   0%

    System error:
    unknown error 0x80004005

    • my space

      my space - 2004-11-19

      0x80004005 is a generic error.
      In order to see what is going wrong try "strace"

      strace 7za a Qt--3.3.3--i686.7z Qt
      (change this command according to your needs)

      Read the last traces to find the error.
