I had downloaded a zip file under windows and unzipped it.
The file names in the zipped archive are long german names, so
they are displayed with special chars embedded in the file names
and directory names, like
So I tarred out the whole directory into a tar file.
Later I moved that tar file to another mounted partition.
I cd'ed to the mounted partition and tried to untar it:
tar xpvf my-tar-ball.tar
For every file in the tarball, tar outputs the message
<.....long.......file........name>: No such file or directory.
Any clues why this is happening?
