    About to cry - installing unrar??

    One of my clients has uploaded about 4 gigs of rar files full of pictures of orchids....I want to unrar them on the server and then just move them to their correct directories, but for the life of me, I can't get unrar installed on the server. I started yast but it keeps freezing on me when I go to software, so I can't search. I tried installing the 'unrar' package, but I kept hitting dependencies....

    Anybody have any tips for me here??? This is a suse box and I'm about to hit it with a hammer...

    OK, Steven......totally lost here...

    I thought that usually when I compile from source, I just do a ./configure and then make and then make install

    But this download has nothing of the sort in it....
    Help please
