RealPlayer 8


I just downloaded RealPLayer 8 for linux. I 'm running into a problems. I downloaded rp8_linux_alpha_rh62_cs1.bin to my desktop. I proceeded to use these commands:

chmod u+x rp8_linux_alpha_rh62_cs1.bin
then
./rp8_linux_alpha_rh62_cs1.bin

I get:

bash: ./rp8_linux_alpha_rh62_cs1.bin: cannot execute binary file.

What am I doing wrong?

Please help.

Or, is there another mediaplayer that can be used to play clips off of nfl.com?

chmod u+x rp8_linux_alpha_rh62_cs1.bin

gives the file owner permission to execute this binary file. But I think you might need to be root to install it. You could try:

% chmod 755 rp8_linux_alpha_rh62_cs1.bin

Then login as root and do

# ./rp8_linux_alpha_rh62_cs1.bin

mplayer (http://www.mplayerhq.hu) will play pretty much anything if the right codecs are installed. Not sure where RP8 codecs come from, if not from doing the RP8 installation as above.

Just editing for the second time...

My version is called:

rp8_linux20_libc6_i386_cs2.bin

Looks like you might have the version for a DEC (sorry HP, no wait, Compaq) Alphastation.
