    Default KWooty with unrar of unar

    When I do zypper dup, unrar is thrown out and put in unar.
    Now it is true that unar does not work with KWooty, he sees it, but unpack no.
    I have now installed and protected unrar.
    Wanted to let this know.

    See https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...unrar-and-unar and https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1083834 .

    unar comes with a wrapper script named unrar as an attempt to replace the non-free unrar in the distribution.
    It turned out that it breaks too many things though, so the wrapper script will be split out into a separate package, still available as alternative to unrar but will not forcefully replace unrar anymore.

    Cheers, Wolfgang. This explains what happens on a friend's system. Some webapp complaining about the wrong unrar version over and over again after eacht uograde.
