Hi,

7zip is a compression method:

7zip homepage

There's also a linux download present at this site

Hope this helps.

It still doesn't help or make sense,
RR64 is a 7zip iso & the 7zip Web site says it does not support turning files into ISOs yet,
Surley there must be some sort of command you give the file like you would if it was a bzip iso ,Like "bunzip2 Your file".
& I cant find anywhere on web that explains turning a 7zip iso into a Bunable iso.
It took me well over a week to download this Distro & now I cant even put it on a disk.
Anyway I'm Lost

Hi again,

Why not download the 'normal' ISO from lynaxdesign? I'm not able to find a 7z version I don't use torrents, so it could be that these are 7z.

Ok, to address your problem: Could it be that the file is a 7z-zipped ISO? I.e. you need to un-7z the file and are left with a burnable ISO.

Hope this helps.

Bzip is a program, you need it installed to unzi pthem, i imagine the same for 7zip, install it from their site, de-compress the ISO, burn

but this is exactly the question I am asking "HOW" I have asked this question elsewhere & get the same answer,"it needs Decompressing"
But I cannot find the answer anywhere at all on how to turn a 7zip-iso into a burnable iso.
Infact on the 7zip Web site they say it doesn't support ISOs yet.
I thought or hoped it would be like it would be if it was a bzip-iso where you would give command something like "bunzip2-yourfile" etc.
AnyWay if anybody knows how to decompress this 7zip-iso into a normal iso, please let me know, as I am really having doubts it can be done & that this Download of RR64 7zip-iso is a error of some sort.
