I think realplayer was /usr/bin/realplay when I installed it years ago. I promptly uninstalled it afterwards because it didn't work. You're better off with MPlayer, Xine or VLC.

I don't understand the so-called "tip" of nflenz... it's useless since he wants to install and use realplayer, so whe should provide a solution and not stating "it does not work, please uninstall or do not install it"!

I am working with opensuse 10.2 and realplayer 10 works out of the box... there has to be another problem...

perhaps missing dependencies... did you try to install realplayer in hardcore mode, which means compiling against the kernel-source of your kernel? could you provide the type of os and your kernel via "uname -a"?

Thumbs up uname

sure. here it is.

I'm using redhat linux..Linux 2.4.18-14 #1 Wed Sep 4 13:35:50 EDT 2002 GNU/Linux

you lost me at compiling the kernel against the kernel.
(sounds like a Dr. Suise thing, I mean Suse thing..

anyway, I need to know the commands and where to locate files.. I am not that knowledgeable yet.

thx.

Tom

one very simple question: did you try to install via:

rpm -i RealPlayer10GOLD.rpm

??, i.e., without the -hv option?

there is also another possibility: if you go to the web page of realplayer again, download via the "download" button a file called RealPlayer10GOLD.bin (recognize the different ending). you can try to install this as root in the terminal via:

sh RealPlayer10GOLD.bin

I ran the sh install..

[root@c-67-165-235-149 root]# sh RealPlayer10GOLD.bin
RealPlayer10GOLD.bin: RealPlayer10GOLD.bin: cannot execute binary file




rpm with -i only:

[root@c-67-165-235-149 bin]# rpm -i RealPlayer10GOLD.rpm
/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.21513: line 7: /RealPlayer/postinst/confscript.sh: No such file or directory
ls: /RealPlayer/share/locale: No such file or directory
install: cannot stat `/RealPlayer/share/realplay.applications': No such file or
directory
install: cannot stat `/RealPlayer/share/realplay.desktop': No such file or directory
install: cannot stat `/RealPlayer/share/realplay.keys': No such file or directory
install: cannot stat `/RealPlayer/share/realplay.mime': No such file or directory
install: cannot stat `/RealPlayer/share/realplay.png': No such file or directory[root@c-67-165-235-149 bin]#

similar result.
