is there a rar program in yum or extra's for fedora or some other rpm that will open up rar files the reason is because i'm using the game called Racer and some of the real good cars are in RAR format
thanks for any info

install the livna repo http://rpm.livna.org/configuration.html
and then use
# yum install unrar

Fedora Extras also has 7-zip.

yum install p7zip p7zip-plugins

You can then use 7z x something.rar to extract RAR files. I've noticed that it doesn't work on all RARs though, so for some you might still need the proprietary unrar program.
