Well, I'm glad you got it working. Installing software doesn't usually take so long, but my explanations should have been clearer. As I said, Real use a non-standard method for installing, but I understand their new player will be more conventional.

I think it's good to learn the basics of the shell, even if you use KDE or Gnome most of the time. If you can just use the commands mentioned above, that will be enough to understand instructions to compile programs, if you ever have to. But the easiest way to install software is using RPM files, which are pre-packaged, and you can install by running the command "rpm -ivh <rpm_file_goes_here>" as root.

Hope you have fun learning linux !
