PEAZIP FOR LINUX ARM DOWNLOAD
page features experimental, user contributed port of PeaZip archive
manager application to
GNU/Linux for ARM CPU
architecture, thanks to Arucard1983
contribution. This port is also discussed in a thread
on Lazarus / FreePascal forum, the best place to discuss coding related
Please note this is not a "native" Google Play Store APK app
Android (or ChromeOS): PeaZip archive manager utility will run natively
on the GNU/Linux for ARM
systems (requiring a rooted machine) rather than running on the
Applications stack (Dalvik virtual machine), as required for Store
PeaZip is a
cross-platform archive manager software, a free zip / unzip / unrar
supports the same rich set of data archiving and compression, strong encryption / decryption, and
file management functions (split
files, verify checksum / hash, secure data and disk
featuring the same
powerful and user-friendly interface over multiple operating systems
and hardware platforms.
PeaZip manage multiple archive types both for creation and extraction,
as 7Z, ARC, BZ2, GZ, PEA, TAR, WIM, ZIP files, and 180+ archive formats
are supported for extraction, including popular 7Z, CAB, ISO, RAR, TAR,
ZIP, ZIPX formats.
Unrar is supported out of the box, including for new RAR5 standard, not
requiring add-ons - alternative unrar plugin available for x86 / x86-64
architectures is based on non-free RarLab's code which is not known to
be available / portable on ARM architecture.
PeaZip Portable for Linux ARM requires a (physical or virtual) machine
with ARM CPU architecture - i.e.
chrooted Android or ChromeOS, or Android emulators (e.g. running the
emulator on x86/x86_64 CPU) - with
armv6l instruction set (armhf), GTK2 runtime is also needed (i.e.
Gimp and dependencies).
Decompress / untar files to any unprotected folder in you ARM device
(Raspberry Pi should work, since it supports the armhf debian
and then click peazip binary. On other ARM systems the application
should be compiled from source package.
Peazip archive manager utility appears to freeze if the starting folder
characters, if it happens, please check the Locales configuration to
avoid this problem, or just kill PeaZip porcess, edit the configuration
use a non-problematic folder.
Running on x86 machine:
Although there are native x86 / x86-64 versions, you can test the ARM
version on ARM emulators on x86 to
check and debug potential problems.
You can in example create a chrooted Debian or Ubuntu ARM system, or
follow those instructions.
