    hi mike,

    sorry for the late comment, but I wanted to show you a patch robby workman wrote for xarchiver to let it open xz archives:

    http://slackbuilds.org/repository/13.1/system/xarchiver/
    http://slackbuilds.org/slackbuilds/13.1/system/xarchiver/xarchiver-0.5.2-add_xz_support.patch

    it seems to work: maybe can be useful also for you :)

      That’s probably a worthwhile addition, even more so with Slackware’s stock packages being compressed with xz. I’ll look at adding that patch in the near future, when I find time to get back to working on my packages.

      Thanks for the heads up.

    I’ve built a new Xarchiver package using the patch mentioned above by ponce. It has handled XZ archives well in limited testing.
