Description vatbier 2009-01-13 10:55:10 UTC
Version: (using KDE 4.1.3) OS: Linux Installed from: Mandriva RPMs Ark Version 2.11.999 Trying to archive my /etc with "kdesu ark" : Result is a big .tar.gz of 33 MB whereas with Ark of KDE 3.5.10 it was only 13 MB. When I look in .tar.gz file I see that /etc/alternatives/ is full with real files and not with empty symlinks. I had to use Gnome Archive Manager to be able to get a .tar.gz file of only 13 MB. Symlinks should not be archived as real files!

Ark Version 2.12 Using KDE 4.2.2 Same behaviour. Ark needs an option like Gnome Archive Manager has: "Exclude folders that are symbolic links". Please fix this.

...or at least have the option to include symbolic links as they are.
