Ark: Extraction Failed because of an unexpected Error


Basically, I have an iso file that is compressed into 20 rar files. After extracting the first file, the error message will appear.

However, my iso file is split into multiparts and not one part. How do I solve this problem?

I'm not sure I understand you. Do you mean what command to you use to run unrar? How about unrar (at the terminal).
To find out what the switches are for try
Code:
man unrar
You'll see an explanation of all the switches.
ciao,

ok basically, these are the files I want to extract. Lets keep it simple: Ark does not work for extraction of multiple part files.

And then I am not sure how to use unrar. In windows, I just right click and unzip.

c@c-laptop:~/Mathworks.Matlab.R2011a.UNIX.ISO-TBE$ ls
ml2011au.iso ml2011au.r06 ml2011au.r13 ml2011au.r20 ml2011au.r27 ml2011au.r34 ml2011au.r41 ml2011au.r48
ml2011au.r00 ml2011au.r07 ml2011au.r14 ml2011au.r21 ml2011au.r28 ml2011au.r35 ml2011au.r42 ml2011au.r49
ml2011au.r01 ml2011au.r08 ml2011au.r15 ml2011au.r22 ml2011au.r29 ml2011au.r36 ml2011au.r43 ml2011au.r50

ml2011au.r05 ml2011au.r12 ml2011au.r19 ml2011au.r26 ml2011au.r33 ml2011au.r40 ml2011au.r47 tbe.nfo


c@c-laptop:~/Mathworks.Matlab.R2011a.UNIX.ISO-TBE$ unrar -e ml2011lau.r00


This command does not work. I saw the man pages for rar but I dont know what switches are for. I am new to linux.

TIA.

Ok, I've seen rar files like yours but not for a while. I unrar ...r00 or ...ro1 and it creates the entire file for me. Try
Code:
unrar ml2011au.r00
or
Code:
unrar ml2011au.r01
and maybe that will do the job.
ciao,
jdk

The syntax of your command is incorrect:

c@c-laptop:~/Mathworks.Matlab.R2011a.UNIX.ISO-TBE$ unrar ml2011au.r01

Sorry I forgot the "e" switch. Silly me. Did you actually read the contents of the man page?
Code:
unrar e ml2011au.r00
unrar e ml2011au.r01
Is that better?
Actually, I used Konqueror on these files and right-clicked on the file name (r00 or r01) and then clicked on "Extract here, Autodetect Folder.
Have fun.

Well it is better. I read the man pages and it said switches. That is when I got lost.

Anyway, at least I got an error message now:

Extracting from ml2011au.r08

... ml2011au.iso 18%
ml2011au.iso - CRC failed

Is it possible to redownload part of a file? I know this isnt related to linux.

CRC Error
Hello Everyone. I had the same problem with CRC errors in Rar files. I went to google and found a solution after several frustrating hours...My solution was to ignore the errors. What you do is go to unrar [and use the] "Keep Broken Files" switch. Any CRC errors that show up during the extraction you ignore/close. The resulting file worked just fine.
http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic49927.html

Try it again with the -kb switch (e is called an "option" or "command"), so something like this:
Code:
unrar e -kb <filename>
So you can use a real switch. And you're most welcome.

All right. Thanks. I redownloaded my file and it works. However, ARK did not tell me what actually happened. Only running it in the terminal did I realize what had actually happened.

Thanks pal!

There is an important lesson there. I mean this:

That is the key to solving a huge percentage of problems that arise.
Congrats and once again you are very welcome.
