It is now beyond doubt that RealPlayer 8.0 (and its Plugin ) does not work with RedHat 9.0
This raises some very important questions for the community
1) Why has this happened. I have visited this forum
but even there the people do not have a clue whats happening. The most they say is that there is something wrong with glibc version being used in RedHat 9.0. Now Linux is supposed to be OpenSource and the beauty of this is that bugs get resolved quickly since the source is there for everyone to see.Yet there is complete silence reagrding this issue.
2) Is this mistake on part of Real or RedHat? This is important because there is a lot of Real Media stuff out there and people want RealPlayer to work on their Linux boxes and would like to know if RedHat is going down the same path as M$ : Release buggy software as quickly as possible in the market and then start fixing bugs as they get discovered (BTW, this means that they introduce more , newer, bugs therein
3) Neither Real have realeased(well they are not supposed to) a patch nor (surprisingly!
) has RedHat.. Anyone knows why this attitude form one of the leading vendors of RedHat
4) Lastly, is there any resolution to this bug?
Thankx in advance...
