Question RealPlayer install issue

I have tried for hours to install this program and still I have nothing.

I have triend to use the "chmod a+x RealPlayer10GOLD.bin" command and the ./RealPlayer10GOLD.bin command, yet nothing happens, as i always get an error.

The error says: error while loading shared libraries cannot open shared object.

I also tried to use sh RealPlyaer10GOLD.bin; however it says it can't exacute the binary file.

can anyone help me out?

the error was clear:
You don't have the required libstdc++
Go to to find the package which contain that file and install that package first.

Don't use freshrpms because you may download packages not meant for your distro or release and end up with dependency problems. If usung Mandriva, do
#urpmi libstdc++5
You can also use rpmdrake (the software gui), but make sure you choose libstdc++5 because thats the one realplayer needs.
