It is 02:30 pm now and I just managed to restore my WordPress setup. Something went really wrong but “God” bless everything is fine again. But that is not the topic of this post.

As I am owning a Marvell SheevaPlug (I *OWN* it really nearly every day)  and really was looking forward to extract RAR files directly on the Plug I tried to install unrar onto the system but had to realise that only the free version of unrar is available which is nice but won’t extract recent RAR files. After some short struggle I managed to compile unrar-nonfree for the SheevaPlug (or to be precise … for the ARMv5TE processor).

So in short terms … here you go … see attached a debian package for your enjoyment.



  1. Hello Erik,

    works perfectly well (Seagate FreeAgent DockStar here), thanks!!


  2. This is exactly what I was looking for – thanks, man! Like Andy, using this on multiple Seagate Dockstars.
