I use MC a lot, partially to read the contents of various archives. However, attempting to read the contents of an Lzma (?) archive as is used in current Vector packages fails.

Does anyone know how to extend the virtual file system definitions used by MC to include such packages?

Well it works for me here under VL 5.8 SOHO. What version of VL are you using? Just hit enter in mc with the .tlz file highlighted and it shows you its contents. Or press F2 to see a menu of possibilities. The file " /usr/share/mc/mc.menu " is the config definitions for the special mc F2 menu, in case you want to add or change anything.

 Smiley Thanks. Looks as though that was missed in the beta. I pinched a copy of /usr/share/mc/mc.ext from 5.8 Stamdard live, which seems to have fixed it...
