how do I install realmedia player?


I downloaded a .bin from realnetworks.

im using redhat9.

I have tried several methods posted here after using the famous but oft ignored search button, including a few different chmod methods.

if I do an sh, it simply says "cannot execute binary file"

when i do the chmod, nothing happens at all.

any ideas?

Assuming the file name is realplay.bin try this (as root):
chmod +x realplay.bin
./realplay.bin

And see what happens. All as root, all in a terminal, and all in the directory where the file is

Cool

Jacked up! Let's give it a blast of mods:
as root:
chmod 777 filename.bin
chown root.root filename.bin
./filename.bin

Post back if that doesn't work...

Cool

Where's the file located? Is it on a Fat32/NTFS partition? Can you post up /etc/fstab

And can you post up:
ls -l filename.bin

Cool

Ookay, well it looks like 2 of us are tired

I'm just assuming here, so go ahead and lemme know if I'm wrong...

Most of the time you don't have an Alpha processor in your box, it's something x86'ish (Pentium, Athlon..). So you just need to grab the correct file for your architecture:
http://207.188.7.150/080acf92cd1d596...6_i386_cs2_rpm

Rename that puppy:
mv rp8_linux20_libc6_i386_cs2_rpm rp8.linux20.libc6.i386.cs2.rpm
And install it the old fashioned way:
rpm -Uvh rp8.linux20.libc6.i386.cs2.rpm



Yeah, for a LONG time those architecture things really didn't make a whole lotta sense to me. I had an Athy, so x86 I thought meant for the old computers And I always went for the PowerPC ports PowerPC is a Mac though FYI.

Anyway, good luck!

Cool

actually now that I have found MPlayer, and since I generally hate RealPlayer, Im gonna drop this project for now.

of course, now I need to figure out how to work with rpms.
*sigh*

my noobness will never end, eh?

Erm, I'm lucky enough to be using mandrake 9.1 powerpack dvd, and it's on there.

But, when I first managed to sort it, I was looking into how to listen to virgin. they do a realplayer stream (amongst others) and I followed the links (sorry can't remember them off hand) for the linux advice from them and got it going that way!

As far as mplayer is concerned, I have looked into that as it would be nice to listen/watch the "Zep" dvd's I got for my BD last month, but I still get confused as to what I actually need to download, so I'm gonna have a go at installing it from the linuxformat coverdisc that arrived yesterday!

regards

John

Definitely! I use mplayer for nearly all my media needs now. It's one of the best tools I've EVER seen. Sooo much to it, very in depth, excellent man page once you become familiar, awesome online docs, and the best part:
Our resident expert is usually great at helping with the more obscure things: acid_kewpie.

Cool
