How To: Get .rar Support in Fedora 13 [Two-Liner Command]

Let’s get right to the point. Here’s how to install .rar support in Fedora 13:

1.) Open the terminal
2.) Copy/Paste the following into terminal

su -c 'rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm'
su -c 'yum install -y rar unrar'

3.) Refer to the following pages for usage
Create/Compress/Archive Almost Any File in Linux (tar, tar.gz, tar.bz2, gz, bz, zip, 7z, rar, etc…)
Extract/Uncompress/Unarchive Almost Any File in Linux (tar, tar.gz, tar.bz2, gz, bz, zip, 7z, rar, etc…)

P.S.
For those die-hard one-liner fans out there, you can use the following instead:

su -c 'rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm &&  yum install -y rar unrar'
