mladen@pureos:~/Downloads$ atool -l ojsa.rar Can't exec "rar": No such file or directory at /usr/bin/atool line 1869. rar: cannot execute - No such file or directory atool: rar ...: non-zero return-code

mladen@pureos:~/Downloads$ man atool | grep rar multiple files in their root directories. The aunpack program overcomes this problem by first extracting files to a unique (temporary) directory, and arepack repacks archives to a different format. It does this by first extracting all files of the old archive into a temporary directory, then packing rar (.rar) use_rar_for_unpack (default: 0) Enable this if you want to always use rar instead of unrar when possible. This makes atool use the rar command (path_rar) even when listing and atool extracts to a temporary directory created in the current directory so that no files are overwritten. This variable controlls what name that temporary directory should have. When using pbzip2, and creating archives, a temporary file need to be created. This option controls the name of that file. See tmpdir_name for path_rar (default: rar) path_unrar (default: unrar) To list contents of the rar archive `stuff.rar': als stuff.rar
If you think it's not needed to patch this, I agree. If FSF has something to note, we should just point them to: https://directory.fsf.org/wiki/Atool
By the way, Parabola patches this, Trisquel not.
