@hobbledhoy899 - kinda makes you wonder why the upstream package even includes an unrar binary when they could just include a symlink for unrar -> rar.

@vorbote UnRAR is not necessary if you have the main RAR program installed; the main RAR program can both create and extract Roshal Archives, while UnRAR can only extract Roshal Archives.

@Vorbote, unrar is available in the official Extra repo:

rar & unrar cannot be packaged together due to licensing requirements.

Hi, would you mind adding unrar to the package? (It is already provided by upstream).

And add this to the PKGBUILD:

conflicts=('rar-beta' 'unrar')
provides=('rar-beta' 'unrar')

Upgraded to version 5.5.0. Replaced md5sums with sha512sums for enhanced security.

Remove rarlinux-x64-5.4.0.tar.gz from your source cache to force a new, fresh download.

Just faced a problem on the checksum:
