Hi All,

I have finally finished off my how-to on getting an implementation of rar file support at the filesystem level. There are a few caveats, but it does work well. Support is only for rar files that use the "store" method (i.e. uncompressed).

It is written up in the wiki:
http://www.knoppmythwiki.org/index.php?page=RarFiles

Feedback is most welcome.

BigB.

Writeup looks nice though you should edit your original post's url which points to the edit feature of the page, rather than the actual page (http://www.knoppmythwiki.org/index.php?page=RarFiles). I would encourage people to use the rar package in the AUR (http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=20760) which gives you rar and unrar rather than following your HOWTO to compile/install it. Why? Because your method doesn't use pacman which is the best way to install/remove files on your LinHES box to keep things nice and clean.

1) Download the tarball from the above url
2) Untar is (tar zxvf NAME_OF_TAR.tar.gz
3) Make and install the package
($ cd NAME_OF_TAR
$ makepkg -s
$ sudo pacman -U NAME_OF_PACKAGE...tar.gz)

This doesn't provide shell intergeneration but does allow for unraring and raring of files.

Hi Graysky,

I see there are AUR packages for both rarfs, and unpackfs. I'll try redoing my instructions using those, i'll retain the original as a semi distro independent solution.

As a side note, I've been installing all my source based packages in the default location of /usr/local, this allows for easier uninstall when things make it to the repos. Technically i should clean my sources, and move them into /usr/src.

BigB.
