emerging realplayer


I am trying to emerge realplayer on my gentoo box. I keep getting an error that says:

ERROR: Certificate verification error for helixcommunity.org: unable to get local issuer certificate

I would much rather emerge it than download it manually. I also tried to download it manually and put it in /usr/portage/distfiles but for some reason it would not try to intall it from this location.
Thanks so much for the help.

Have you tried the Gentoo forums (forums.gentoo.org)? It appears that quite a few people have had similar problems. Searching for "Certificate verification error for helixcommunity.org" comes up with a few suggestions. In particular it could be SSL-related:

thanks for the link. I thought that I had tried this several times before but maybe I did something wrong because I tried it again and it worked great. The only problem is, is that I cannot hear any sound when trying to stream over the internet. I have alsa installed and I can play several different songs/sounds at once using different applications so I know my sound card can support it but do I have to configure RealPlayer in some way? Thanks in advance for the help and thanks for the previous help.

Hmm. So Helixplayer's running and looking like it's playing the media? I don't currently have a gentoo install with X so I can only guess from past experience but...
  • A long shot, but you've checked the mute/volume control in the player?
  • Have you considered that it could be an OSS vs ALSA issue? This can be a real headache (no pun intended).
  • Some people report disabling arts in KDE can help/hinder; are you running KDE?
  • Depending on your card, window manager etc, you may find that there are quite a few different kinds of volume sliders to play around with in whatever mixer program controlls your system's audio volume
  • Is the media you're trying to play embedded in a web-page or playing in the standalone player?
  • There are other media players which might be worth trying before you pull your hair out, random example: http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-gentoo.html
  • Have you tried different media sources? (E.g. http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/)
  • Check all your USE flags to make sure everything related to real and audio which you might need is getting compiled. You'd would probably have to have disabled something for things to go wrong that way though.
If you're audio's generally fine and Helixplayer's up on screen you're probably on the home straight.
