I am completely new to Linux. I downloaded a realplayer but couldnt run the bin file. Here was what i got....

I did a chmod and no error prompted... but still got a bash shell error message: cannot exexute binary file.

[root@cm218-253-255-123 wah]# chmod a+x rp8_linux_sparc_cs1.bin
[root@cm218-253-255-123 wah]# ls -l

bash: ./rp8_linux_sparc_cs1.bin: cannot execute binary file
[root@cm218-253-255-123 wah]# file ./rp8_linux_sparc_cs1.bin
./rp8_linux_sparc_cs1.bin: ELF 32-bit MSB executable, SPARC, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.0.0, dynamically linked (uses shared libs), stripped

I am using Fedora core 1, kernel, if it matters.

Thanks in advance.

It's realplayer for SPARC architecture (Linux running on Sparc machines). You probably need I32 version. It may be the right link for you:

Edit: Please don't post new question at the end of old thread about similar issue, but not the same. Your post was split from the thread.
