Use yum to install rar ie "yum -y install rar". You can then do "rar -x archive.rar" to extract the .rar file.

Additionally, you could simply install "unrar":
Code:
# yum install unrar
Then, to unpackage your *.rar file:
Code:
$ unrar filename.rar

I'm sure to unpack (extract) you do
Code:
$unrar x filename.rar
If you use KDE and you have ark installed, it will unrar files graphically if you have installed the unrar package.

You still need unrar installed for ark to unrar files.

actually it's

unrar e filename.rar

In gnome you need to do this from the command line. File roller doesn't recognise rar files, even with unrar installed

update: I've just installed rar and file roller does recognise and display rar files now!

The version of unrar I am using on Mandriva, uses the "unrar x filename.rar" command.

Double checked just in case and found the following:
Code:
$ unrar
<Commands>
  e             Extract files to current directory
  x             Extract files with full path
looks like we're both right :-)

try this

If you are using Fedora core Linux then use yum command as follows (see discussion below):
Code:
# yum install unrar
If above method is not working for you, download binary package from official rarlab site:
Code:
$ cd /tmp
$ wget http://www.rarlab.com/rar/rarlinux-3.6.0.tar.gz
Untar file
Code:
$ tar -zxvf rarlinux-3.6.0.tar.gz
Now copy rar and unrar to /bin directory:
Code:
# cp rar unrar /bin
To open rar (unpack) file in current directory type command:
Code:
$ unrar e file.rar
