Created a debian wheezy package on a BeagleBone Black. But this should work on any Wheezy based install. This process pulls in packages from Wheezy, Wheezy-backports, jessie and one PIP install. All are deb packages from official debian sources, minus the one PIP install. README.md has been updated with instructions. And then install the package 'xz' with # cd /usr/ports/archivers/xz && make install clean as usual. Then you can consult the man pages with # man xz To decompress the archive, the man pages say that you can type # unxz FreeBSD-8.2-RELEASE-i386-dvd1.iso.xz at the command prompt of your root shell, and you get the decompressed file.

I'll second the question of what are you trying to do. I assume you have a program that you got from someplace but that may be wrong.
Is this a program or just a set of files? In a very general sense a tar file is a set of files strung one behind the other to make a single file. The.xz tells us it is most likely been compressed like using zip on windows. When un-compress them and separate them out you get a collection of files usually. I try to put those files in a unique place so they won't get posted all over the drive. In many cases, when you have a program in this manner it will have some sort of read me file in it to help the user install it. $ tar -xJvpf file.tar.xz Requires some things that may not be installed by default.
Package xz-utils in debian for that compression type. $ cd file/ $./configure --prefix=/usr $ fakeroot debian/rules binary This should create the.deb packages in the./ path.
