RAR for Linux
I have recently downloaded RAR for Linux, and it is a bit hard for me to use,
since I don't understand the confusing explanation you get in the shell.
Could anyone tell me how to do the following, so I can understand it better (not just me,
but anyone that sees this thread and has te same problem):
>open the file "/home/hajime/Desktop/games.rar"
and put the inside files into "/home/hajime/Desktop"
Most Linux distributions have an easy way to install unrar and other packages using their package managers. What Linux distribution are you using?
Hi, I am using Momonga Linux, which I think is kinda similar to
I've never heard of that distro, but if you are sure that its compatible with FC, then go to rpm.pbone.net, search for unrar and get a Fedora package (make sure you don't get a debuginfo rpm). You can then use the rpm command to install the package.
Find the packages called "rar" and "unrar"."Don't think about the work, think about the benefit"
Ooooh, so "unrar" is another program?
Mhmhmhm, how curious.
I will try, mate.

Now I have just unrared the files I needed, a bit confusing at the beginning,
but now I know how to do so.

Several years ago I had packed a set of files into several 1.4 Mb rar files on several floppy disks.
Unfortunately one of the floppy disk is damaged/bad sectors.
I cannot unrar the whole set of files.
Is it possible to retriieve several files from the whole set of files?
Is there any rar / unrar recovery utility on Linux?
