Ubuntu :: Can't Unrar Split Archive

Jun 18, 2010

I recently downloaded a program to find out it was in pieces. What I originally conceived as being a small problem has turned into a major time wasting dilemma.

I've tried many different things to get it to properly extract, viewing threads on these forums even, but to no avail.

The files were named:
file.part02.rar etc.

I though this was the problem so I renamed all 84 files (except the first one), removing the .rar extension. No cigar.

My final attempt of several was using 7zip:

7z x myArchive.rar -o/home/[username]/Desktop

I was in the correct folder as far as I could tell.

I have included a screenshot of the files in order to stop any confusion about my description.

Software :: Unable To Unrar Archive / Solve It?

Feb 9, 2010

I've downloaded some torrents, and someone CONVENIENTLY made them a multiple file archive instead of a single file.

I've tried unrar -x <filename>-part1.rar, which it says it completes, then I don't see the file. What do I need to do? WinRAR usually decompresses them just fine, but on Linux is where I have the problem.

More importantly, why on Earth would anybody do this?

Software :: Decompressing A Split File Archive ?

Aug 14, 2009

I have a huge rar compressed split file archive at my webspace but not enough space to decompress the file.

Is it possible to decompress the split file archive and deleting already decompressed parts on the fly? Currently, I'm using winrar 3.70 beta 2 but it seems that it hasn't such an option.

Fedora :: Can't Extract With Unrar / Make This Work?

May 18, 2010

I have a .rar file called Japanese, and every time I enter the command "unrar e Japanese.rar", I get the response "Cannot open Japanese.rar No such file or directory No files to extract".

I've done everything on this site, but I can't get it to extract. What do I have to do to make this work? Do I need to set the directory or something? I've seen other people mention that as a solution for other problems, but have no idea how to do it.

Fedora :: Unrar Suddenly Slow / Make It High?

Dec 11, 2009

I've just noticed that unrar is suddenly taking minutes to extract instead of seconds.

I can remember if its recently been updated, but I've uninstalled and reinstalled it and the version is: unrar.x86_64 0:3.7.8-3.fc10

I've found a few Ubuntu posts about it on Google, but in true Ubuntu fashion nobody has any answers!

What's odd is that when I unrar a file from (Nautilus or "unrar x *.rar") it takes say 4mins, then if I do it again it takes 15secs, like as if its caching somewhere.

General :: Get Xarchiver 4.9 On Linpus Lite To Unrar Rar Files

Nov 4, 2010

I had to reinstall everything on my ACER aspire one, and now I can't unrar rar files with xarchiver. I tried installing ARK but that didn't work, and instead of troubleshooting why Ark isn't working I'd really just like to get Xarchiver to work. I uninstalled and reinstalled using yum but that didn't change anything.I also tried installing the source code of xarchiver 5.0 from a tar.gz, but the ./configure needs to be able to find gtk+-2 and for some reason it can't.

General :: Auto Unrar Files And Move Whitelist To Another Directory

May 10, 2011

I'm looking for a script that can be run regularly with Cron.

Check a folder for Rar files every few minutes, Unrar if present, and delete the left over files once done.

Be able to specify the directory of which folder to watch within the script.

Run an extension white list (.avi, .mkv, .mp4) and blacklist (rar files) of files to be moved.

Specify within the script which folder to move found files to.

I've seen a few online that does some of this or much more than this but I'm looking for something that just does this in a simple and efficient way... (Also for the life of me, I just can't get how to edit this to do what I'm looking for)

Ubuntu :: Burning Split Tar.gz Files To DVD?

Feb 4, 2010

I am using rsync to create rotating snapshot style backups of my web files and sending them via SSH to a remote location in order to burn them for offsite storage. This is all working perfect. The remote machine is a Windows Server 2003 which has data that I combine with my web files before burning. I have cygwin installed on the remote server in order to archive and compress the entire backup using tar. (This is not a post about cygwin, I just thought I would mention it in case anyone was wondering how I was running Linux commands after transferring it to the Windows box). After compression, the backup is over 12gb. The next step in my process is to split this tar.gz file into smaller chunks in order to burn them to DVDs. I use dual layer DVDs which are 8.5gb storage size.

I also use cygwin to split the tar.gz into multiple 2gb files using the split command. When I burn them, I only put 3 files on each disk totaling 6gb to leave some padding in case this was a problem. The burn completes and says successful, although it errors out when in verification. I have tried this multiple times and it seems to fail verification at the same point every time which leads me to believe that it has something to do with the data. I have also done tests such as creating smaller backups with completely different data and brning that to a CD-R which worked fine, so I'm convinced this process can work, I just cant get it to work in the right situation. I have also tried burning one of the 7 split files to a dual DVD which also worked fine. I'm wondering if their is a chunk of data that is causing this problem in one of the other split files?

Ubuntu :: 10.10 Installation Has A Split Personality?

Apr 21, 2011

For reasons best known to itself, the Ubuntu 10.10 installation programme created two drives when it put my favourite OS back on the existing partition (which had become inaccessible). One is 20GB, the other 12GB. The former appears to contain the programmes that run the current distro (boot, root, etc. and so on). The latter has all my personal stuff (text files, pics, music etc.) I don't much care about this dichotomy, it works after all. But there is a part of me that says that this is all a bit untidy, that the right thing to do would be to merge the contents into one. The rest of me says, "don't rock the boat." Is it possible to merge them? Should I do it? How might I do it?
