Realplayer last hurdle


Hi Folks,
All I want is Realplayer10 to work in Slackware10 so I can hear the radio, well maybe it is working and is something else.
Realplayer works in root again and as user I can see it palying, but no amount of tweaking mixers lets me hear anything.
As user I can open /windows and play and hear cdrom. so I am thinking it is a permission thing again or a link.
my fstab is like this:
/dev/hda2 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hda3 / reiserfs defaults 1 1
/dev/hda1 /windows vfat auto,rw,user,umask=000 1 0
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,user,rw 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,user,rw 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

missing cdrw, but who cares.

I installed Realplayer as user but with errors so reinstalled as root. I did an install on my laptop and it works great, my homemade PC is a shame though. Always worked before slackware 10.
BTWfunny how slackware works better than any distro on laptop) (SuSe is a trd)

thanks in advance as usual.

I prefer using Helix Play [1] for my Real media/audio. Take a look into it, might solve your prolem.

I thought these two were esentially the same and didn't think Helix could play streaming audio (like the BBC stuff).
It would be interesting if this works. Shall give it a try.

Fixed Fixed Fixed ..
Here is what I did.
Not sure which of these worked, because I was in a hurry. If anybody know which probably worked let me know:

chown 666 /dev/mixer*
chown 666 /dev/dsp*
chmod g+rw /dev/dsp #
chown root:audio /dev/dsp

Changed my group a little: probaby incorrectly..
root::0:root
bin::1:root,bin,daemon
daemon::2:root,bin,daemon
sys::3:root,bin,adm,users
adm::4:root,adm,daemon
tty::5:
disk::6:root,adm,users

Angry rnx logins in Realplayer

Unfortunately, the .rnx login protocol is only supported in the Windows version of RealPlayer and there are no plans to change that anytime soon. NFL Field Pass and some BBC content are affected, among others. For the forseeable future, Windows is required for these sites.

At least Major League Baseball has a clue. Their Gameday Audio works perfectly with the Linux version of RealPlayer, but the Firefox/Mozilla plugin has to be installed.

No need to change the permissions on the /dev devices, they will be changed back when you reboot anyway.

You should just make sure your user is in the audio group.

Code:
usermod -G audio <your-user>
You probably want to be in the cdrom and video aswell:

Code:
usermod -G audio,video,cdrom <your-user>

nfl field pass

NFL field pass is one item that has a signin.rnx form, that won't work with linux. I found a work-around, as follows:

1. Go to https://account.real.com/login/ and login there, via html form.

2. Two possible procedures:

2a-i: Click on "Guide" near the top
2a-ii: Click on "Sports at menu to left, it expands, then click on "NFL"
2a-iii: Choose your game to listen to, dialog box opens, choose to open with realplayer

2b: After step 1, just go directly to: http://sports.guide.real.com/nfl (I haven't tested this version, but it should work)

This doesn't actually help with the rnx form, but bypasses it.

I don't have RealPlayer SuperPass but I do have an NFL.com login. How does it know the difference?

Last season it was possible to go through the individual team sites and bypass the login screen but that was "fixed" right before the playoffs this past January. It worked during the entire 2004 pre- and regular season. It doesn't work this year.

Nope, didn't work. Just gave me the NFL Field Pass nag screen. Guess anyone who wants to listen to football is stuck with Windows. :-(
