Bug#746198: unar fails to extract test rar on arm.
I recently got the following report from a raspbian wheezy user
So I decided to test it in some test chroots (note: the i386 chroot was
on an amd64 host, the arm chroots were all on an armv7 host)
Using the simple test file found at
"unar text-test.rar" and "lsar text-test.rar" raise the error:
Archive parsing failed! (Unknown error.)"
unar on my Squeeze desktop happily extracted the above archive.
debian wheezy i386: works
debian wheezy armel: fails
debian wheezy armhf: fails
debian jessie armel: fails
debian jessie armhf: fails
raspbian jessie: fails
So it looks like a general arm breakage, not something specific to raspbian.
