Code: [Select]
mc: mc (GNU Midnight Commander)
mc: MC is a user shell with a text-mode full-screen interface.
mc: It can be run on the OS console, in xterm and other
mc: terminal emulators. It allows you to manage files while
mc: still having access to the command line. It is simple to
mc: use, and provides virtual filesystem support for compressed
mc: files including LZMA compression.
mc: License: GPL
mc: Authors: Andrej Borsenkow <> & others
mc: Website:

This build fixes problems with Fish in earlier svn builds, fixes problems handling .tlz packages and also adds support for the new Slackware .txz archive format. To use the xz archive handling, you will need to add the xz package. It can be found here:

Fixes in this package should all be incorporated in 4.7.0-pre4. A build should be available shortly after its release.

        After testing this package please stop back here and let us know how it works for you.
