Re: Unable to install Unrar on Debian 6

I think there could be several reason which might be the root cause of the problem.
  • Can you tell me which operating system do you have installed on the computer?
  • Which Version of kernel you are using?
  • Tell me about the hard ware configuration of the computer?
  • Do you have done any recent changes on the computer?
