You download the binaries, just uncompress the file, then just execute the main bin

Good practice is make it [uncompress] into the /usr/ [ie. /usr/realplay] directory.

Other way is that the file create files into specifics directories, so you need uncompress from the root, and, yes as root; check the content of the package.

But here is other problem. I reinstalled Fedora 9 x86_64, and this time I installed Realplayer through RPM. First download the rpm file from Then did the follow:
$ sudo rpm -ivh RealPlayer11GOLD.rpm
After that, I could see the icon of realplayer in the Applications --> Sound & Audio menu. But either selecting this icon or double clicking an .rm file won't start realplayer. I checked that my realplayer was installed in the path /opt/real/RealPlayer/, and I opened a shell, go into that directory, and ran
$ realplay
I got the following message:
** (process:3840): WARNING **: Unsupported locale en_US.utf8! Please use a locale with .UTF-8 suffix! For example: export LANGUAGE=en_US.UTF-8

Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "gnomebreakpad": cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

(realplay.bin:3840): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "nodoka",

** (realplay.bin:3840): WARNING **: Could not create helix engine. Make sure your helix libs are installed at: HELIX_LIBS=/opt/real/RealPlayer
Any help appreciated!
