Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant.

hey i have gone to real player site and downloaded the linux version of realplayer.but it seems its a binary executable..i dont know how to execute it...is it some thing like tarball ?how to open this package?i could extract from this package..when i tried to execute it at hte console..its did not run..does any one have any idea about this??
When you run the executable you have to give the entire filename:
Also, make sure that you are in the same directory as the executable file.
md5sum is a way of checking that your download worked properly. Many download sites give an md5sum file that contains a long string of characters. On your system if you do the command: md5sum r1p1_linux22_libc6_i386_a1.bin the checksum will be calculated and you can compare it to the string of characters that the download site gives. If they match the file is valid, if they don't, it's not.
You have to give the file the right to be 'executable'. I usually install realplay as 'user' and not as 'root' so i just (i'm using KDE but you can alway use chmod) rightclick the file and choose settings and tick 'execute'. You could try the same. Good luck

i did not get that user part. i've been trying to execute the file by going to its directory only and i have entered the full directory name...ie...by typing
root@dheeraj:~# sh r1p1_linux22_libc6_i386_a1.bin
but the output is not changing..is there any other way on installing the real player in slackware?please help me out..
