Install RAR Archiver on Fedora 12

By default Fedora 12 can not support the RAR archive files. But we often use RAR archive files, so we need install the RAR program.

We can download RAR package from http://www.rarlab.com/download.htm
# wget http://www.rarlab.com/rar/rarlinux-3.9.3.tar.gz

Untar file
# tar zxvf rarlinux-3.9.3.tar.gz

Install RAR
# cd rar
# make
mkdir -p /usr/local/bin
mkdir -p /usr/local/lib
cp rar unrar /usr/local/bin
cp rarfiles.lst /etc
cp default.sfx /usr/local/lib

After all the above, you can use rar and unrar commands.
