On my 64-bit system, xarchiver *does* recognise & display the contents of on-disc 64-bit ISOs; I tried Classic & Live ones - but neither recent.
Another problem re 32-bit ISOs?

Ben, can you say whether xarchiver recognises 64-bit ISO files?

Hybrid ISOs are a bit unusual.
Martin knows more.

Standard Linux utilities can handle the file format:

% file Mageia-8-rc-i586.iso
Mageia-8-rc-i586.iso: ISO 9660 CD-ROM filesystem data (DOS/MBR boot sector) 'Mageia-8-rc-i586' (bootable)
% sudo mount Mageia-8-rc-i586.iso /mnt
mount: /mnt: WARNING: source write-protected, mounted read-only.
% ls /mnt
autorun.inf  boot/  boot.catalog  DATE.txt  dosutils/  EFI/  i586/

Hi,

As far as I remember, xarchiver never allowed me to view the content of an ISO, neither in current version nor in any previous one, even in x86_64.  For me, xarchiver simply does not handle ISO files.  How did you achieve that?

Best regards,

Nico.
Comment 7 Thomas Backlund 2021-02-16 17:00:36 CET
maybe xarchiver needs cdrkit-isotools installed to list iso contents ?

for example mc is relying on that to show contents
