Re: how to handle rar file

unrar is in the rpmfusion repos ( I think in the free one, but do not take word on this)
Edit: it is in nonfree http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfr...iew/unrar.html

Re: how to handle rar file

Unrar is for unpacking / reading rar archives. You'll need also rar to create archives.

Re: how to handle rar file

Note that unrar is free. Although rar is available, there should be a license.txt file that explains that rar is on a try before you buy basis, free for 40 days, I think. It's an honor system thing, I don't think anything happen.

One can do the same thing, with very similar syntax, with p7zip, that is, create small chunks of a large file. Windows using friends should (I think--but am not sure) be able to open them with winrar.

Re: how to handle rar file

Usually installing p7zip is sufficient for managing archives

Re: how to handle rar file

By Golly you're right. I hadn't tried that (using 7z e to unrar a rar archive.) Thank you.
