I was wondering if you kind folks could clarify this for me.
When root creates a tarball using -zcvf the above two items are indeed part of the tarball's properties, correct?
I ask this as Slackware's manual page does not mention if they are/not the default. I've been searching online, some pages have show that the --preserve-permissions implies --same-owner, and that the --preserve-permissions option is enabled by default for user root.
Those online manpages are for gnu/tar versions older than Slackware, and hence my lack of clarity on the matter.
The info pages do not mention anything regarding this as well.
Lastly, does Slackware's tar back up 'xattr' info? Does a normal home user desktop/laptop user need worry about that? Isn't xattr info being used by KDE to tag metadata?
Thanks in advance.
