RAR archive support on 64-bit systems?


Hey all,

As the title suggests, I'm wondering if there is a way to get RAR archive support on a newly set up Fedora 3_64 system. I have a rather large archive I need to extract onto this system, but it's stored in RAR format. So far, I keep hitting dependancy errors when trying to install it, and yum says it can't find it. Apt won't even install, also due to dependancy errors. I'd sure think that by now some of these bigger apps would have 64-bit support.. it would be quite a bummer if I couldn't get this to work on this nice new system.

Thanks in advance for any advice!

so basiaclly you just can't find one? just try compiling it from source if there doesn't appear to be any prebuilt ones for 64bit.

I had tried building from source, but was still running into problems as some of the library files weren't there that it was looking for.

I did get it working now after I found someplace that had a beta version that supports 64-bit systems. It's only the unrar portion of it, but that's all I need for now anyway.

unrar for 64-bit FC3

I have a similar need. Do you think you might be able to share where you found this gem?

Anyone else feel free to jump in if you know the answer. :-)

Thanks.

I think that I always installed 'unrar' from the source tar-ball. I am using an AMD64 laptop at this moment running SuSE 9.2. I don't see the download tarball saved so maybe I am remembering wrong.

However, entering "rf:unrar fedora core" in the application launcher revealed these RPMs for FC3.
