nightflier has built a new Xz package for VectorLinux 6.0.
xz: xz (compression utility based on the LZMA algorithm)
xz: LZMA is a general purporse compression algorithm designed by Igor
xz: Pavlov as part of 7-Zip. It provides high compression ratio while
xz: keeping the decompression speed fast. XZ Utils are an attempt to make
xz: LZMA compression easy to use on free (as in freedom) operating
xz: The people most responsible for xz are Igor Pavlov, Ville Koskinen,
xz: and Lasse Collin. For more info: http://tukaani.org/xz/
Note that this package creates a simlink to /usr/bin/lzma. If the package is uninstalled it will be necessary to reinstall the lzma package, otherwise future package installation will fail.
The original lzma package can be found here:http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-6.0/packages/base/lzma-4.32.0beta3-i586-1vl60.tgz
After testing this package please stop back here and let us know how it works for you.
