I had searched with "apt-cache search rar" but it came up with a lot of packages... Now I found the package unrar-free, but it won't work unless the rar files are from a version <3.0. I also tried with p7zip... the POSIX version of 7-zip... but it doesn't support rar files... If anyone else know about an application that works with rar files =>3.0 I'll be really pleased. I give up.If you noticed, the output from apt-cache that Steve quoted showed two packages for unpacking .rar files. One was unrar-free, which you tried and the other was 'unrar'. If you do an "apt-cache show unrar-free" it will also mention that the non-free version of unrar can unpack .rar files =>3.0. You might want to apt-get install unrar (and rar while you're at it, if you have any need to pack .rar files) and see if it works better for you. HTH, Jacob

No, I don't have non-free repositories... and no, I don't want them.
In fact, one of the things I said was:
Does anyone know a free software alternative to RAR???Anyway... I don't REALLY need rar... it was just to check if there was one (free software) and if there was, well, I wouldn't say no to apt-get :P
Aight, that's it.
Thanks to everyone.
