20100131 xz-4.999.9beta [VL6.0]
« on: January 31, 2010, 12:23:50 pm »
nightflier has built a new Xz package for VectorLinux 6.0.
Code: [Select]
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: systems.
xz: The people most responsible for xz are Igor Pavlov, Ville Koskinen,
xz: and Lasse Collin.  For more info:

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

Good work! Seems to work flawlessly. Opens in mc files with txz extension like a charm.

Just installed claws-mail-3.7.4-i486-1sl.txz using installpkg. Went smooth.
