Description Dawid Zamirski 2005-04-29 13:15:15 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050414 Firefox/1.0.3

Description of problem:
When I right-click on a .rar archive the file roller complains about unsupported format. I have unrar-3.4.3-1.1.fc3.rf package installed which was left after upgrade from FC3. I have no problems extraxting the files using unrar x archive_name.rar in the console.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get any .rar archive
2. Right-click on the archive file and choose Extract Here
3. Read "Archive type not suporrted" error message.

Actual Results:  "Archive type not suporrted" error message.

Expected Results:  Extract the archive.

Additional info:

the unrar package that I have installed comes form dag repository and it was working ok in FC3.

Comment 1 David Zeuthen 2005-04-29 14:57:29 UTC
I believe this is fixed in Rawhide; according to it was fixed in 2.9.3 and we ship 2.10.0 in
Rawhide. Also, the GNOME bug for this issue is this one

but there is no patch attached to that bug. I suggest to upgrade to FC4 when it
is released as I won't backport this fix since rar isn't shipped in the Fedora
Core distribution.

This issue seems to be resolved in version 10.0.3 Is there any chance to get it
into updates-released?
