Real Audio for Slackware

Anyone running Real Audio for Slackware?

I've googled around and found a few older threads from 2000, but not sure if the packages have changed since then or what.

I don't think there is a real player for slack.

I know mplayer can run real media (*.rm) files tho, have tried it too...

You can get a linux version of realplayer that works with Slackware here :
Just get the Linux 2.x (libc6 i386) version then follow the directions on the download page : Once you've successfully completed the download, you will be ready to install the RealPlayer. To do this, you must make the installer executable and then run it:

* Example:
chmod u+x rp8_linux20_libc6_i386_cs2.bin

It works for me.............. Have fun

Thanks for the URL.

Wasn't sure if getting files from here would work with Slack or not.
I've d/l for my RH box in the past.
