Unable to extract the rar from fedora as the packages are not available. So tried with yum install but it is not working ?

[root@sard-4191 ~]# yum install unrar
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
Setting up Install Process
No package unrar available.
Error: Nothing to do
  • The package probably isn't called unrar. I searched but couldn't find a list, try rar. – Kevin Nov 10 '11 at 15:19

For Fedora, yum install rar will provide what you need.

Usage:     rar <command> -<switch 1> -<switch N> <archive> <files...>
               <@listfiles...> <path_to_extract\>

  e             Extract files to current directory

    "No package rar available." lol – Totty.js Jan 24 '16 at 21:17

The unrar program is not included in the Fedora repositories because it is not free software.

It is, however, available in the RPMFusion repository. Follow the instructions here to enable RPMFusion. Once you've done that, you can simply yum install unrar.
