How do I decompress lzm files?


I have debian etch and trying to decompress a file zipped with lzm compression. However I am looking for a file called
lzm2dir

I have lzma package installed, but lzm2dir is not part of this package in debian.
Thanks in advance

I wonder if 7zip would handle that.. the author of 7zip is apparently the guy that came up with lzma compression..

http://sourceforge.net/projects/sevenzip/


it looks like lzm2dir is part of the linux-live tools.. http://www.linux-live.org/

lzm2dir is a script that simply use unsquashfs. Under Debian you will probably need the squashfs-tools package.
