i hope this is in the correct section

i cant figure out how to do it from the command line. i have serveral packages (s.r00, s.r01, etc, s.rar) which i can unrar if i double click on the .rar file. howver, cannot figure out how to do this using the command line. i have tried putting all the files in the command, or individual files, but rar wont pick up on the rest of the files so it always gives me incomplete library error messages.

pls help, thx.

`unrar x s.rar` should do it, you should only need to specify the "first" or header file on the cli.

There are actually two versions of unrar in portage now, and I think the newer "unrar-gpl" is the default package pulled in if required, so if that's what you're using, try the other package.
