I'm trying to install unrar package for my cpanel. as some people suggested that I need this package unrar-4.20-2.mga3.nonfree.x86_64.rpm . So when I run rpm -ivh unrar-4.20-2.mga3.nonfree.x86_64.rpm I get this error:

    [root /]# rpm -ivh unrar-4.20-2.mga3.nonfree.x86_64.rpm
warning: unrar-4.20-2.mga3.nonfree.x86_64.rpm: Header V3 RSA/SHA1 signature: NOKEY, key ID 80420f66
error: Failed dependencies:
    libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.14)(64bit) is needed by unrar-4.20-2.mga3.nonfree.x86_64

I saw posts suggesting to install EPEL and still the problem exists. I didn't see a relevant for installing the EPEL but still I tried and nothing worked.

Any suggestions will be much appreciated.

Note: I have Centos 5.7

So you just downvote with no comment. or you just downvote when you have no answer? – mamdouh alramadan Feb 25 '13 at 15:51
Oh, the reason is this: I answer and you delete my answer with no reason. I suggested that you can't install a Mageia rpm on a CentOS system because of incompatibilities. I suggest rpmforge, as it offers you a solution, namely a comatible unrar rpm and a repository. – schaiba Feb 25 '13 at 15:56
Why are you trying to install a Mageia RPM on a CentOS system? – Renan Feb 25 '13 at 16:05
@mamdouhalramadan: You can't. Somebody else must have. I believe it takes more than one member to delete an answer, so the answer deleted must've ticked off more than one. – rahmu Feb 25 '13 at 16:24
@mamdouhalramadan: See my answer above: install rpmforge from here: wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories/… . Then 'yum update && yum install unrar' – schaiba Feb 25 '13 at 16:25

Install rpmforge from here: http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories/RPMForge#head-5aabf02717d5b6b12d47edbc5811404998926a1b . Then 'yum update && yum install unrar'
