Re: [MiNT] Mintlib bug?

Hello guys,

I've compiled the tar specs that were already available against the new
mintlib and had some issues as previously discussed.  A refresher:

root@washi:/root>tar ztvf st157n.tar.gz tar (child): Cannot exec gzip: No such file or directory
tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

Try to locate the origin of the error message "Cannot exec %s" in the tar sources. It will be in the child branch of a call to fork(). Then find out the exact arguments that exec*() is called with. It would also be helfpul if you partially dump out the environment of the parent and the child process (at least the variables PATH and UNIXMODE) before and after fork().
