yum localinstall will work only for rpm files. For a bin file, execute it directly:
Code:
./RealPlayer10GOLD.bin
In case it is not already done, make that file executable before you launch
Code:
chmod u+x RealPlayer10GOLD.bin

In the given command '.' stands for "current directory". You need to add this because, by default and unlike windows, the current directory is not part of the default path where the system looks for executable files.

So you either change dir where your file is located and type the given command begining with the dot or type the full path to the executable file (ie: /full/absolute/path/to/executable or relative/path/begining/from/where/you/are).

In either cases, the file you want to launch must be executable (see the chmod command in my previous post in case it isn't).
