Install Unrar Fedora 15 Beta

Unrar has yet to come to the repo, but its super easy to install.

  1. Download the binary from their site. http://www.rarlab.com/rar/unrar-linux-x64.gz

  2. gunzip the file

  3. Copy it to /usr/bin as root

  4. Give it the correct permissions 0755

Heres a simple script that will do all that for you.

#!/bin/bash  
# Install unrar binary to /usr/bin  
#  
# \***| Must be run with root privileges \***|  
cd /tmp  
wget http://www.rarlab.com/rar/unrar-linux-x64.gz  
gunzip -N unrar-linux-x64.gz  
cp /tmp/unrar /usr/bin  
chmod 0755 /usr/bin/unrar  
echo "Unrar installed."
