I have not yet been able to get the RPM file to install with a runable Real Player 8 on Red Hat 9...much less as a plugin. I know how to put the .so file over into the Mozilla plugin folder.
The problem is this...
The RPM file installs just fine by cutting and pasting the posted command lines from the download site.
The RPM even runs to completion...apparently, so that subsequent tries to reinstall will abort saying that the program is already installed...the problem is that subsequently, the program file refuses to start.
I can open a terminal and surf over there and double click the program file, but it just can't run.
I get an error that says something about not being able to locate child program or something like that.
At least I know how to use Yum to locate the player and then run Yum remove to get the useless thing back out of my system!!!
