When Archive::Tar is not installed, extension installer falls back to command line tar but fails because the file in /tmp is not there apparently:

Fetching http://foswiki.org/pub/Extensions/ImageGalleryPlugin/ImageGalleryPlugin.tgz...
Unpacking...
Archive::Tar is not installed; trying tar on the command-line
tar failed: No such file or directory Failed to unpack archive /tmp/7JaTDdOcDm.tgz
Content-type: text/html
Software error:

Use of uninitialized value in pattern match (m//) at /usr/local/www/sites/foswiki/lib/Foswiki/Configure/UIs/EXTEND.pm line 237,  line 1.

After installing Archive::Tar, untarring works fine.

-- KoenMartens

Configure tells "may be required by the Extensions Installer in configure if command line tar or unzip is not available". Can we detect this and show a warning?

This code has changed a lot on trunk; really need an updated test of this, please.

-- CrawfordCurrie - 07 Nov 2009

Code in trunk is also wrong.

This is a duplicate of Item2609
