Unhappy Installing RealPlayer from source rpm


Hello there!

I am trying to install RealPlayer from a source rpm but it's not working for me. I have got no clue because I am new to linux. I am on Fedora Core 4 and this is what I am doing and getting as result:

[root@localhost SRPMS]# rpmbuild --rebuild --recompile RealPlayer-10.0.3-1.src.rpm
Installing RealPlayer-10.0.3-1.src.rpm
warning: user build does not exist - using root
warning: group build does not exist - using root
warning: user build does not exist - using root
warning: group build does not exist - using root
warning: user build does not exist - using root
warning: group build does not exist - using root
error: File /home/build/src/player/installer/rpm/redhat/SOURCES/install.bz2: No such file or directory

I have also tried rpm --ivh option and then try to rebuild a binary from specs file but to no avail.

The reason for this exercise is to get the various online music sites, like ragga.com and smashits.com working as I came across while googling for the problem that one should install RealPlayer from source rather than using a compiled rpm as the compiled version uses gcc 3.2 whereas firefox and mozilla are compiled with higher version of gcc and this incompatibilty makes those stops working.

I would be very grateful if any of you could help me.

Cheers!

Not sure about the --recompile option.
I've rebuilt src.rpm's before with just the rpmbuild --rebuild command.
(Though I've never tried it with the realplayer rpm).

What distro are you using? If you have libstdc++-5 (or compat-libstdc++-33 on REdhat based distros) then the RealPlayer rpms work fine and so does Firefox.

Does this have got something to do with user and groups and I need to create new group called build and then assign to it a user named build and if so, can anyone tell how to do so?

I am using fedora core 4 with libstdc++4.0.2-8, libstdc++4.0.2-8-devel and compat-libstdc++-33. And yea everything works fine expcept website I mentioned, namely:raaga.com and smashits.com. Thier player does not play anything and constanaly shows only one message "LOADING". I was on SUSE Linux 10.0 before and it was fine there.
