Description Dawid Zamirski 2005-04-29 13:15:15 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050414 Firefox/1.0.3

Description of problem:
When I right-click on a .rar archive the file roller complains about unsupported format. I have unrar-3.4.3-1.1.fc3.rf package installed which was left after upgrade from FC3. I have no problems extraxting the files using unrar x archive_name.rar in the console.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get any .rar archive
2. Right-click on the archive file and choose Extract Here
3. Read "Archive type not suporrted" error message.

Actual Results:  "Archive type not suporrted" error message.

Expected Results:  Extract the archive.

Additional info:

the unrar package that I have installed comes form dag repository and it was working ok in FC3.

Comment 1 David Zeuthen 2005-04-29 14:57:29 UTC
I believe this is fixed in Rawhide; according to
http://fileroller.sourceforge.net/ it was fixed in 2.9.3 and we ship 2.10.0 in
Rawhide. Also, the GNOME bug for this issue is this one


but there is no patch attached to that bug. I suggest to upgrade to FC4 when it
is released as I won't backport this fix since rar isn't shipped in the Fedora
Core distribution.

This issue seems to be resolved in version 10.0.3 Is there any chance to get it
into updates-released?
