I have ported File-roller application to maemo environment.  The x86 version seems to work fine
interms of creating different compressed formats.  But, the same operations does not seem to work
on the N770.

The respective root straps have been downloaded from http://repository.maemo.org/stable/mistral/

The errors are  something like this :-

   while extracting the file
         error: tar: unrecognized option --force-local
         BusyBox v1.01(Debian 3:1.01-4.osso10) multi-call binary
         usage: tar -[cxztvo] [-f Target] [-C DIR] [FUKE(s)]

After commenting the --force-local
    while extracting the file, if that contains the folder and files and folder
       error: tar: invalid tar magic.

Could anyone pls throw some light on this problem.
