partimage can't restore a compressed image from stdin

Bug #239568 reported by Brian Pitts on 2008-06-12
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
partimage (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: partimage

If you restore from stdin, CImageDisk::getCompressionLevelForImage returns COMPRESS_NONE regardless of whether the input is compressed or not. The result is a failed restore and the misleading error message "stdin.000 is not a valid partition image file"

This was tested in 0.6.7, there is more discussion at
