You need to install unrar and then extract the file using ark, file roller or "unrar x filename.rar" ("unrar e filename.rar" should work as well).

To get the livna repository just follow the advice at:

After just execute:

yum install unrar

Fore .ace files you di this:

yum install unace

The command for unpacking the .rar files is:

unrar e *****************.rar
