Opening RAR Compression in Linux

I get a problem when using Mandriva 2010.1, which confronted me in the RAR file. RAR files can not be opened by the application Ark (one application in linux to open a compressed file). Because the RAR plugin is not available. Unlike Ubuntu, in ubuntu the repository have been provided. While in mandriva after I try searching through the add and remove programs is not available, when connected with plf repositories already in Then I remembered the magazine Infolinux ever include courses on cd luggage.

For the program can be downloaded at the following link download download rarlinux-3.6.0.tar.gz or newer download download rarlinux-3.9.3.tar.gz

For how to install are as follows.
1. open konsole or terminal
2. entry in the directory where you saved the file rarlinux
3. Extract the file you rarlinux

$tar -xzvf rarlinux-3.9.3.tar.gz

4. Go to the directory rar

$cd rar

5. Install rar


Now RAR compressed files can be opened ...

To perform compression with a command line interface is as follows:

$ rar a coba.rar file1.jpg file2.jpg file3.jpg

Meanwhile, to extract the RAR file is as follows:

$ unrar x nama-file-RAR.rar

It can be applied to other Linux OS like suse, fedora, ubuntu ...
