Having problems with RealPlayer 10 on RedHat Linux 9

I have installed RedHat Linux 9 with Gnome and then installed RealPlayer10, installation completed succesfully, but when I try to open mp3 file the player just turns off . Is there something to configure after installing or what's the problem?

p.s. I'm a total newbie in linux.

How did you install realplayer 10, exactly?

Why did you install such an outdated OS when uptodate versions are available much more easily?

If you just want to play mp3s - there is an mp3 plugin for xmms.
Look at mplayer - I think the RH9 notes are still up at - mjm's mplayer setup includes definitive instructions for getting realplayer going too - with the bonus of playing and editing video formats as well

But really: just convert the mp3 files to ogg/vorbis format, then play them.
