rar - unrar

Hi!

I have one question about rar - unrar. RAR is not free and there are UNRAR.
Today I tried pacman -S comix and I got:

cannot resolve dependecies for "comix": "rar" is not in the package set.

Thanks.

Re: rar - unrar

Looks like willysilly hasn't updated the package yet.
A workaround would be to download the pkgbuild and install.diff , change the dependency yourself and build it with makepkg.


Multi-init booting with apg Openrc and systemd coexisting
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them

Re: rar - unrar

How about having rar as a provides=() for unrar?

IMO, that would be a misuse of the provides field. unrar can only uncompress rar archive while rar can also create them. Therefore, unrar doesn't really provide rar.

Did someone sent  an email/PM to willysilly to inform him about that issue?
