Updated to 5.40
Removed unrar installing rule. Please using official libunrar and unrar packages from extra repository.

I think it's because unrar is already in the official repos.
Anyway, we need an update here.

Why isn't this in [community] or even [extra]? Is the license holding it back?

Updated PKGBUILD here:

rar is now at 5.4.0, so this package is now out of date

FadeMind commented on 2016-02-15 13:20

Current version at 20160215
RAR 5.30 for Linux
RAR 5.30 for Linux x64

AUR was updated and improved (provides unrar) at 2016-02-13.

So please don't mark this OUT-OF-DATE.

That doesn't require even bumping the pkgrel, by the way.

Please enclose your srcdir and pkgdir variables in double quotes, to prevent problems with paths with spaces.

Now that with pacman 4.2.0 [1] / AUR 3.5.0 [2] there is support for architecture-specific sources [3], you could use:


Instead of:

if [ "$CARCH" = "i686" ]; then
elif [ "$CARCH" = "x86_64" ]; then

The AUR "Sources" section will then look like so:

[1] =
[2] =
[3] =
