http://unix.stackexchange.com – I am getting an error- "Unknown file type 'A', extracted as normal file" while un-taring a set of files which has acl permissions set. I had created the tar file in solaris as tar -cpfv Tarfilename.tar directory if I un-tar as tar xvpf Tarfilename.tar, it works great in solaris I had copied the tar file to Linux and tried to unatr using tar xvpf, it throws the warning Unknown file type 'A', extracted as normal file and created files without ACL permissions. tar --version : tar (GNU tar) 1.15.1 in Linux (HowTos)
