Description Răzvan Sandu 2008-02-20 06:07:47 EST
Description of problem:

Package unrar seems to be missing from Fedora repositories for recent versions
(Fedora 8).

No alternative way of opening RAR archives has been documented.

A Google search for unrar RPM packages only reveals third-party rpms.

Please readd unrar to the official Fedora repository.

Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.

Fedora's never shipped unrar, as the license prevents it.
