Description

p7zip is the open source clone of 7zip. It includes command-line-tools and a nice GUI to manage compressed archives of 7z and other formats.

Install just the CLI-tools:

wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/p7zip/p7zip/9.20.1 /p7zip_9.20.1_src_all.tar.bz2 &&
tar -xvf p7zip_9.20.1_src_all.tar.bz2 &&
cd p7zip_9.20.1 &&
make all3 &&
./install.sh /usr/bin /usr/lib/p7zip /usr/man /usr/share/doc/p7zip

Install the CLI-tools and GUI:

wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/wxwindows/wxWidgets-2.8.12.tar.bz2 &&
tar -xvf wxWidgets-2.8.12.tar.bz2 && 
cd wxWidgets-2.8.12 &&
./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --enable-unicode &&
make &&
make install &&
cd .. &&

wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/p7zip/p7zip/9.20.1/p7zip_9.20.1_src_all.tar.bz2 &&
tar -xvf p7zip_9.20.1_src_all.tar.bz2 &&
cd p7zip_9.20.1 &&
make all4 &&
./install.sh /usr/bin /usr/lib/p7zip /usr/man /usr/share/doc/p7zip

I'm not convinced this is useful. I've never seen a 7z archive.

comment:2 by Thomas de Roo, 9 years ago

Would a Hint be a better place?

comment:3 by Igor Živković, 9 years ago

I'd like to add UNetbootin some time in the future. UNetbootin requires p7zip.

comment:4 by Fernando de Oliveira, 9 years ago

Not frequently, but I use both. I would like to have both in BLFS, too.

comment:5 by bdubbs@…, 9 years ago

UNetbootin looks like a nice package to have. I'm not so sure p7zip is needed as a stand alone package. It would be nice if both packages were added at the same time.

Found a 7z archive of something in the last few days. I found out that bsdtar from libarchive can extract the file just fine. I don't know however if it can create one. Just thought you wanna know.
