This post is for Windows users who want to extract XZ and/or TAR Files to a Disk Image File (aka ISO file), i.e. I’ve never had reliable luck wid extracting TAR Files under most Linux OSes…sometimes I get lucky tho, but can’t remember which Linux OSes worked. 🤨
That’s what I feel like when trying to extract TAR Files under most Linux OSes. 🤬 Linux OSes are made for Technical People like developers, programmers, IT specialists, etc., which makes me just a “normal people.”
*DOUBLE* Extraction using 7-Zip
Main ‘Thangs to remember when viewing the following pics:
- .iso.tar.xz = XZ File (.xz)
- .iso.tar = TAR File (.tar)
- .iso = Disc Image File (.iso)
Going from an XZ File to a Disc Image File, requires two 7-Zip extractions, for a “normal people” like me. I have 5 pics that could be useful for a “normal people” trying to create a ‘Live‘ bootable MocaccinoOS Linux (MOS) USB:
MocaccinoOS Linux (MOS) is a new Distro, wid typical new OS problems, and they are attempting something new (that I don’t really understand) that might end up making ‘Thangs better for “normal people” type of Desktop users.
- BTW, here’s a free tip to the MocaccinoOS Developers: give “normal people” Desktop users the option to opt out of the annoying “Authenticate” popups and/or ‘Pesky Passwords’ and let them be a Fulltime Linux Root User on their *OWN* home computers. I noticed the MocaccinoOS GNOME version allowed a root login at the Welcome Screen, but sound ‘n other stuff didn’t work as well there as it did in the Enterprise ‘Password Dependent‘ User section.
OK…that’s it for Part 2, and I will add this post to the Gentoo ‘n Redcore Linux ‘n Pentoo ‘n T2_SDE page.
LINUX IS LIKE A BOX OF CHOCOLATES – you never know what you’re gonna get!
