archivemount is a smart tool which provides "mount" function for several kind of archive files (ex. .zip, .tgz, .tbz, etc.) without extracting them. See the link above for more details.
This page is providing RPM packages of archivemount for Enterprise Linux 5, 6 and 7, that means the packages are for all of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, CentOS, Sientific Linux, and all of Red Hat clone distributions.
Note: EL6 and EL7 does not need additional packages, however EL5 needs libarchive additinally.
|package name||SRPM package||RPM package|
Prerequisite: fuse, fuse-libs, libarchive.
After the installation of the prerequisite packages, just run the following command:
# rpm -Uvh archivemount-0.8.7-1.*x86_64.rpm
Then you can use "archivemount" command now. Please check "man archivemount" as well.
just run the command "archivemount" as "mount" like:
# archivemount archivefile.tgz /mnt/mntpoint/ ... do something ... # umount /mnt/mntpoint/
It is safe to add "-o readonly" option onto archivemount, not to change the archive file.
