    rar files

    Could anyone tell me how to open rar files in Knoppix 7.3?I tried sudo apt-get install rar unrar, but get the message:Package rar is not available, but is referred to by another package.This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, oris only available from another sourceE: Package 'rar' has no installation candidateE: Package 'unrar' has no installation candidate

    Hi westcoast!

    You could download the following packages and try to install them with dpkg.

    Unarchiver for .rar files (non-free version), download package (i386)

    non-free rar module for p7zip, download package (i386)

    Archiver for .rar files, download package (i386)

    I tried sudo apt-get install rar unrar
    Did you use
    Code:
    su
    aptitude update
    before this?

    Always thought that the Linux port of 7z could unpack .rar files until being pointed out by the post. Gonna add the p7zip-rar to my todo list. Thanks for the heads-up!
