I'm a former Windows user. I used to use 7-Zip on
Windows to compress
my backups before writing them to CD. 7-Zip definitely
better than bzip2, so I would like to use it to
compress my backups.
I've used rsync to copy my home directory to another
`/mnt/backup/home/first` (the username is "first").
Then I installed
p7zip from experimental. Then, after reading the man
page, I ran this:
`7z a -r /mnt/backup/home/first.7z
`/mnt/backup/home/first` is my backed-up home
directory, and I want it
compressed to a file called `/mnt/backup/home/first.7z`.
After running that command, it crashed with this output:
# 7z a -r /mnt/backup/home/first.7z
7-Zip 4.14 beta Copyright (c) 1999-2005 Igor Pavlov

Scanning/usr/bin/7z: line 2: 12034 Segmentation fault
One of the times I tried it, it said:
"Command exited with non-zero status 139"
I don't think I'm doing anything wrong.
