No, you most certainly do not want 7zip.
You want xz-utils, as was posted earlier in the thread, which is at:
Your distribution may have a package for it.
Those who haven't heard of xz may have heard of lzma-utils; xz is the
new name, now that the file format has magic. It still uses the lzma
algorithm for the actual compression.
Most sites who had tried out using lzma already have started to switch
to xz. One can expect lzma to die out as a file format, leaving gzip,
bzip2 and xz as the three common formats.
As a side note, the lzma algorithm is also used in the doze world by the
7zip and rar archive formats, which seem to have the market share, there.
