View Full Version : Reading and creating RAR archives

Well, normally the process would be pretty straight forward, unfortunately, it isn't as easy as it looks. Only unrar is available via the repository, which makes things difficult when you want to create your own archive. Unrar only allows you to read RAR archives, not make them. You need the RAR RPM package (which I have attached.) Here is the link to download it yourself if you need to do so.


I hope people will find this guide useful.

If it isn't necessary for the files to be in rar format, one can also use p7zip, which has almost identical syntax, and can extract most rar files as well.
