  • Milestone set to Firmware 2.3
  • Severity changed from unknown to normal
  • Status changed from new to confirmed
  • Version changed from beta2 to N/A

Sounds like a good idea. We'll have to see about the disk space requirements, but I suspect that won't be big problem.

However, this is something for the slightly longer term.

Done a bit testing on unrar:

  • install must be done with following packages

libuclibc++_0.2.2-9_mipsel.ipk, unrar_3.9.8-1_mipsel.ipk. I got the files from

  • installation:

opkg update opkg install libuclibc++_0.2.2-9_mipsel.ipk opkg install unrar_3.9.8-1_mipsel.ipk

  • it will install in /opt/bin/ as executable file 'unrar'
  • run: /opt/bin/unrar e file.rar , from the current directory of file.rar
  • it works for multiple packed files !! like file.part01.rar, file.part02.rar..., or even with file.rar, file.r00, file.r01...
  • what I could not achieve: to run unrar from any directory without path. It works only by executing /opt/bin/unrar.

Unrar does not work for zip files, so for zip another solution must be found
