Default How to burn dvd1.iso.xz ???

Hello everyone!

Would anyone know how to burn this strange .xz format to a DVD. I did a search and found only one person that said use 7-zip but my 7-zip say it can't open the file... It seem that FreeBSD will soon be complexly reliant on Windows. But whatever the case might as well learn how-to other than taking the easy way out (tomorrow we may have no choice). Would anyone know how to do this... FreeBSD web-site give-it but said nothing about what to do with the file ... Gosh! It's like back to the day when FreeBSD was so hard to install. I waited 20 years for an easy install (7.0 - 8.1) and now it's like dead again.


Thank in advance

xz is a compression format.

It's in ports:

From FreeBSD 8 and onwards it seems to be in the base system.

xz homepage with versions for different OS's:

As for 7-Zip, xz seems to be supported, at least in versions "7-Zip and LZMA SDK versions 9.00 alpha and later" (From xz page).
UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that would also stop you from doing clever things.
