The package "unrar" is probably what you're looking for. Did you search your repo before asking?

I installed this from Ubuntu, as deb;... well was risky unrar_3.5.4-0.1_i386

but rar a pack.rar data

says that rar is not found.

apt-cache search rar ; no way to find; beacause we get toooo much.
regarding rarlabs, I donwloaded the tar.gz but it as glib6 and with etch stable, this is too complicated to get ...

I worked on it, one or 2 evenings

Unless you're using Ubuntu, you should really stay on the Debian debs. A mixed system just may bite you bad at some point. Open up synaptic, hit CTL-f, enter rar, select Name, and press search. It'll give you a list of stuff containing "rar" in the name. For Lenny, I get both rar and unrar version 3.80 beta 1 or something like that. Dunno for Etch.

You really should consider upgrading to Lenny. It's good stuff!

Or you may try the following command:

Code:
xterm -e echo " rar " | while read each ; do apt-cache search -n "$each" ; done
