Bug 162188 - RAR archives' directories are not recognized properly
RAR archives' directories are not recognized properly

Description Ilya Konstantinov 2004-12-24 22:07:33 UTC
To reproduce:
mkdir foo
touch foo/bar
rar a foo.rar foo
file-roller foo.rar

In File Roller, the 'foo' directory is shown as Type "Unknown" and it's
impossible to enter it by clicking it (though it is possible to browse inside
the archive by typing "/foo" into Location).

Expected result:
The 'foo' directory should be shown as a directory.

If you use:
  rar a foo.rar foo/bar
then RAR avoids creating a directory entry for 'foo' in the archive (as can be
seen by running 'unrar -t foo.rar'), and then File Roller works fine. This might
give you a hint at fixing the problem.
