what interests me is what is actually the fastest archive to open on Linux?
I don’t know if anyone knows, but I’ve been sitting in front of my computer for about 15 minutes waiting for a tar.gz archive to be opened by Ark.
This archive is about 25gb and contains over 500,000 files.
I know the problem for years, but have never dealt with it because I then simply unpack the respective archive via CLI, pick out the files I want, and delete the rest.
But that can not be the point of the matter.
Under Windows I do not know the problem because there I always used 7zip. It didn’t matter how big or how many files the archive contained, 7zip always opened the archive instantly.
Now I thought I could just use 7zip under Linux as well. But again, the same problem.
It doesn’t matter if I use 7zip, rar, zip, tar, tar with several combinations (gz, lzo, etc). All of them take forever to open with Ark, File-Roller, or other GUI’s.
Does anyone happen to know what is causing this? Or how I can solve the problem?
Thanks a lot.
