    sounds like you are not running the rpm command as root

    unrar: /lib/tls/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.4' not found (required by unrar)

    Try using yum to remove it and re-install it.

    Should find and/or configure all of the dependencies.

    SLiM_BoY,

    How did you install unrar? Didn't it throw dependency error while installing? Try installing another version of unrar.

    I think the RPM-based installer only grabs the binaries, and copies them to the required locations, no actual compiling.

    Slimboy, are you on a VPS, or a dedicated server? You need to upgrade glibc.

    so disappointing....
    my experience: ServInt and Bluewho are good but expensive. futurehosting is disappointing, hivelocity is a scam. liquidweb is really good support but slow server. Innohosting is incompetent support. Stablehost is stable. 1euro is incompetent.

    You can do this

    $ wget http://dag.wieers.com/rpm/packages/u...l4.rf.i386.rpm

    $ rpm -Uvh unrar-3.6.8-1.el4.rf.i386.rpm

    Cheers

    Alternativley if you are having problems with RPM's, you can just get the CLI version of WinRar directly from www.rarlab.com. Make sure you have Glibc 2.4 though.

    # wget http://rarlab.com/rar/rarlinux-3.7.1.tar.gz
    # tar xvzf rarlinux*
    # cd rar
    # make
    # make install

    Hope this helps.

    For Centos 5.1 you can simply add the 'rpmforge' repository and just do: yum install rar unrar

    That really doesn't do anything to resolve issues. It's always best to use a "package" based system for non source related stuff so that you can grab the dependencies.

    You should be able to with 4.x now too, at least I was able to. the 'rar' package still complains about the glibc crap, but it'll get there eventually I guess.

    This is what happens when you use pre-compiled stuff, you get to deal with dependencies on their own stuff. Unfortunately, the only (known) source for rar exists in a win32 platform AFAIK.

    This is why tar/zip are so much better, the issues just don't exist, or aren't as prevalent.

    Install the rpmforge packages, following these instructions.

    yum -y install rpmforge (for CentOS/Fedora)
    up2date rpmforge (for RHEL)

    This will grab the packaged versions that will work with your system and install it.
