    Default ark vs big zip

    I'm using Leap V42.3, 64 bit, and KDE.

    After downloading gcc-master.zip from github https://github.com/gcc-mirror/gcc

    I'm trying to unzip it with ark.

    Clicking on file brings up ark, then I select a destination directory, then I click extract.

    It can run for hours but never finishes the extraction.

    I've downloaded several versions recently, same issue.

    It's a big file, 138 Mb, 33 folders and over 86000 files.

    On a W10 Thinkpad laptop, it takes 30 minutes at most.

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you.

    Default AW: ark vs big zip

    Try:
    Code:
    ark gcc-master.zip
    Maybe you see any error.

    But unzip is much faster:
    Code:
    unzip gcc-master.zip

    ark doesn't work with this file.

    unzip worked really fast by comparison.

    Thank you.
