Realplayer has its own plugin for Linux found on their own homepage but from what I've read and heard, its crap. Most will install and use mplayer for most of their media needs. Check it out at

And what is slackwave? Never heard of it..

You mean Shockwave. I don't think there is, currently, a Shockwave for linux.

And, many here will recommend getting mplayer for your Real Player needs, I think. Do a search here on mplayer, I can't remember the site name at the moment. It's some mplayer.something.hq-somethingorother... (Edit: See post above. My typing was slow again.)

(hehe... man, hope that helps a little.)
