Every time that i try and extract a large file using the built in file archiving utility in Ubuntu, it crashes. Every time. By large file, I mean anything >= 1gb. I know that this is no fault of my machine, as this happens on every machine I use. To solve the problem, I run trusty WinRAR under Wine on my Linux box. It’s honestly faster than anything I’ve used yet on linux (aside from command line stuff).
If you have any suggestions, I welcome them.
