unRAR for Mandrake


Anybody knows how to get the data out of RAR files made with WINRAR in windows?

Any software for LINUX for doing this thing?

there is an unrar package avaiable in the PLF mandrake repositories. You can set it up using the guide at easyurpmi.

I tried that out.
But, still I can't open My RAR files.
There was some stuff added in the compression section (GZOZIP), but couldn't unRAR My files.
I thought that ARK would UnRAR my files, But it did not.

Is there any other software as such for UNRARING files in LINUX.?

gives me this error when I type your syntax.

bash: syntax error near unexpected token `newline'


I changed the directory to the files I want to extract, and then issued your command.
But to no avail.

I did this..

cd /homeamit/

then..

unrar e <c.rar> (Here C is the name of the file that is to be unrared.)

You could also try "unrar x filename.rar"

That implies that unrar is not installed.

If you have the PLF urpmi repositories configured, just do "urpmi unrar" as root. Did you say you tried the versions from PLF before?
