Is there anyone that have found rar or unrar for MyBook World?
I guess that it will be more efficient to unrar files directly compared to download, unpack and write back.
Here's how to do it if you REALLY want to use rar on the mybook:
1. Login as root and change to the directory where you hold the sources.
2. Download the sources, decompress and change to that directory
tar -xvzf unrarsrc.tgz
3. Use the makefile.unix to compile
mv makefile.unix Makefile
4. I couldn't find a way to make install, so here's what I did and I'm not very sure if it's the right way.
mv *.o /usr/lib
mv rar /usr/bin
Any suggestions on the last step?
Well I was not too crazy. It took 1:42 to unrar a 366MB file directly on the MyBook, while it tool 2:15 to unrar it with 7-zip on my PC from and to MyBook.
Thanks for all your help!
I suggest that you skip moving *.o to /usr/lib since it's only object files used by the linker. Just run:
mv unrar /usr/bin
(You could also run "make -f makefile.unix" instead of renaming it).
1h42m or 1m42s :) 1m42s would really amaze me!
