GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 747461
The tar command used to restore backups doesn't work on FreeBSD
Last modified: 2015-04-08 10:25:21 UTC
The tar command used on FreeBSD is bsdtar, an implementation of tar based on libarchive. It doesn't support putting options after filenames, and older version of bsdtar may not support using '=' symbol in long options.
This problem is reported by an user using evolution 3.12.11 on FreeBSD, but the attached patch should also work on the latest version. I hope we can push the patch to both gnome-3-16 and master branch.

Make the tar command used to restore backups work on FreeBSD
Thanks for a bug report and patch. It looks fine and works here as well (Fedora), thus I'm pushing it into sources:
Created commit d9e63d5 in evo master (3.17.1+)
Created commit df51ea5 in evo gnome-3-16 (3.16.1+)
