Command Promt
[root@localhost ~]# cd /root/Downloads/RealPlayer
[root@localhost RealPlayer]# chmod a+x RealPlayer10GOLD.bin
[root@localhost RealPlayer]# ./RealPlayer10GOLD.bin
./RealPlayer10GOLD.bin: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
[root@localhost RealPlayer]#

Please Help!!!!

OK, first of all, which distro are you using? Which version of gcc ships with it?

If you're running Ubuntu (i386) just go here:-

Download the and install whatever you want using it. It includes Realplayer, codecs and other stuff and takes five minutes to run through.

I had this problem with mandriva 2005 I got the same error message. realplay just would never load up.
I looked at my mandriva CDs and found on the cds. I installed and then realplayer worked fine. I would find an rpm version of if you can't find it on any cds
