Greetings,

I had trouble remembering a password for an old compressed file and ran into this piece of software: RarCrack! It is fantastic but a bit slow.

Install is as simple as:

Code:
$ tar -xjf rarcrack-0.2.tar.bz2
$ cd rarcrack-0.2
$ make
$ make install
I solved some problems I had with rarcrack after reading countless tutorials:

1. Pertaining the problem with the warning when doing make, I edited the .c file by changing line 206:

Code:
if (strcasestr(ret, “ok”) != NULL) {
to

Code:
if ((char *)strcasestr(ret, “ok”) != NULL) {
and everything worked fine.

2. The actual command to use the program is:

Code:
#./rarcrack --type 7z --threads 12 /home/myself/compri/Myoldfile.7z
After this, everything worked fine.
