    Default Ark not unpacking .rars correctly


    Hi!

    I've tried with several files now, I have a series of .r01 .r02 files
    etc.

    When I open Ark it says the file is maybe 698 mb, but will sometimes
    only unpack around 315 mb, then maybe 450 mb.

    Any clues?

    Have you tried adding the rar package? I found it works better.

    It seems then that it is not recognizing the fact that the file has been
    split. You need a program that will join them.
    I haven't looked for a linux utility, but in windows hjsplit works
    well. It does run under wine.

    WinRAR works great under wine.

    I've noticed that ark has trouble with rar files with a space in the
    filename.
    Aku isn't any different.

    The one gui program that seems to work flawlessly is file-roller.
    No problems with spaces in filenames or whatever archive.

    1) ****** wine --
    2) ark DOES NOT automatically unrar ALL the split files (no spaces in
    filenames, too)
    3) solution was to use command line _unrar_e_archivename.rar_

    Has anyone posted a bug yet?

    After installing "unrar" not "rar" with yast, I have an extract option
    on the right click menu in konqueror that unpacks multiple rar archives.
    Right click on the file with the ".rar" extension not one of the
    numbered ie ".r01, .r02" files.
    For numbered archives that aren't rar's such as .001, .002 try
    installing p7zip, it has to be run from a console though and as I recall
    it has problems with spaces in filenames. You can do batch file renaming
    with krename to fix a long list of names quickly, so it might help to
    install it too.

    I hate workarounds to problems that never existed before, until
    developers messed up the code so much that MORE bugs are created. There
    ought to be progress, not retrogression! Easier - not MORE difficult.
    Fewer -- not more -- bugs.

    Sorry - rough day.
