Unhappy Real Player 9 for linux 9.0 help


Hi every one,
i installed Redhat 9.0 and wanted to listen some online music from a site which requires real player to do so. Therefore i downloaded RealPlayer9-9.0.7.151-4.i386.rpm but when i double click the icon for installation it stucks, and when i tried
#rpm -ivh RealPlayer9-9.0.7.151-4.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
libXm.so.2 is needed by RealPlayer9-9.0.7.151-4
this is the error which i have got. so please can any one help me.
thanks in advance

try converting it by using rpm2tgz. then you can unpack it and put it where it needs to go.

realplayer

hi,

try installing realplayer 8 for linux. i have realplayer 8 on redhat 9.0 and it works perfectly for me.

if u want to try to install realplayer 9 then libXm is a must. realplayer 8 does not use libXm.

get the realplayer 8 from :

http://www.itp.tu-graz.ac.at/Comp/RPM/RByName.html

it will be a source rpm file. so when u do :

# rpm -i realplayer?????.src.rpm

it will install the tar.gz file in /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES. just go that directory, extract the tar.gz file by doing :

# tar xvfz realplayer?????.tar.gz

it will create a directory : go that directory and do :

# ./configure

then

# make all

then

# make install

then

# make clean

and during "configure" if there are no errors then hopefully u will be able to install it and use the realplayer...

hope this helps u..

aaditya

still no luck

thanks chewysplace and majalee
i was able to change the rpm file to tgz file
then i did this
#tar -zxvf RealPlayer9-9.0.7.151-4.i386.tgz
it created two directories usr and etc but i went in both of them and tried almost every thing like configure, ./configure, install, make install and many other things but none seems to be working
how ever usr directory has bin, lib and share sub directory where as etc has X11 sub directory
what should i do no

thanks
neo

i dont see why you needed to do a ./configure or install. just move the contents of both directories to the /usr and /etc directories.
it should work right away after that.

for example:

tar zvfx RealPlayer9.tgz makes /usr and /etc
now type this command: cp usr/ etc/ / -R
this will copy everything from the subtress into the /usr and /etc direcotries.
then go under /usr/local <i think> and you should find RealPLayer9 direcotry.
undet the RP9 directory should be the program. you can go to the /usr/bin direcotry and make a softlink to it by typeing somethign like:
ln -s /usr/local/RealPlayer9/realplay realplay

so when you just type realplay in the console it'll bring up the program.
have fun with it. if any questions just post.
