Hi ricacola,

You just need to give the following command as super user..

yum -y install RealPlayer

This will install the RealPlayer with all dependencies

I think linux professional 8.2 is a Suse version. Unless I am mistaken (it has been a while) Suse uses yast and not yum.

download realplayer.bin and then try this:

su
<enter root password>
chmod a+x RealPlayer10GOLD.bin
./RealPlayer10GOLD.bin

It might work

ricacola....first make sure that u r in the same directory where the RealPlayer10GOLD.bin exists
Then do double check the spelling of the .bin file....the name must be case sensitive
The name may differ according to the version of the RealPlayer what u r trying to install...so u have to be carefull about that

Ricacola: Everything put in a "code box" is to be taken literally
unless otherwise indicated. If I write "whereis" and you type "where is" those aren't the same thing so of course it couldn't find the command.
