chmod +x reaplayer*.bin

./realplayer*.bin


where realplayer*.bin is the filename of the realplayer bin file.

Your not actually typing in realplayer*.bin ??? you have to type in the actual name on the bin file, I was just guessing what it was called

replace realplayer*.bin with whatever your file is called. Depending on what shell your using the filename should turn green to indicate it is now executable.

Plus you should get in the directory where the file is and then do the ./

After you download the realplayer.bin file, as root you need to do the chmod +x realplayer.bin. After you do this you need to type 'exit' so you are back at your user prompt and then do ./realplayer.bin and it should open an install dialog that will walk you through the installation.

You need to be root to do the chmod +x rp7.bin.

You might want to just download the latest version of realplayer8, someone suggested that 9 is available but good luck trying to find it. Maybe the "alpha" build you are trying to use has problems.

ok i did everything u guys had suggested and nothing worked. so i went back to the website and got the alpha version. that actually worked. however, when i ran the ./realplayer*.bin it brought me to the installation part of it. it got halfway done and then it said :
Segmentation fault....what the heck does that mean? should i retry it???

much love,
nikki

Segmentation fault is bad.. and probably caused by the fact its an alpha.

There isnt really much you can do to fix it.. best try a stable version.
