Real Player is hosed. Will not work and will not uninstall.


When I try to run Realplayer, I get this message:
/usr/local/RealPlayer/realplay.bin: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

So, I tried to uninstall by typing in rpm - RealPlay, and I got this error:
[root@linuxbox tbibo]# rpm -e RealPlayer
ls: /usr/local//share/locale: No such file or directory


I would really like to listen to some "Car Talk" on real audio, but it seems like it is a no go. So, I tried installing mplayer, but it looks like it has tons of dependcied, and I am tired. I guess my second question is, "Is there a way for me to install mplayer and all of its dependcies at once?" I have yum connected to some different repositiories, but I keep getting dependency messages when I try to insall mplayer.

THANKS!

Try linking the libraries and then run realplayer again.

Code:
ln -s /usr/local/lib/libstdc++.so.5 /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5
ln -s /usr/local/lib/libgcc_s.so.1 /usr/lib/libgcc_s.so.1

Thanks for the tip, but I was not able to make it work. Here is what happened:

[root@linuxbox tbibo]# ln -s /usr/local/lib/libstdc++.so.5 /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5
ln: `/usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5': File exists
[root@linuxbox tbibo]# ln -s /usr/local/lib/libgcc_s.so.1 /usr/lib/libgcc_s.so.1ln: `/usr/lib/libgcc_s.so.1': File exists
[root@linuxbox tbibo]# realplay
/usr/local/RealPlayer/realplay.bin: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
[root@linuxbox tbibo]#

You need to install compat-libstdc++ or libstdc++ using apt or yum for RealPlayer to work fine.
