how to install realplayergold10.bin


hi all

i am trying to install realplayer10gold onto a dell inspiron 1100 laptop 40gb, 512 ram, suse 10.1, gnome,

when i click on the program on the desktop where i saved it to all i get is a software installer error window with the message " You must have superuser privileges to install local packages "

on this forum after typing in my question i clicked the thread " click here to find similar threads " and got the answer below.

just run it from the command line within X in a terminal window after changing the permissions on it to rwxrwxrwx which would equal chmod 777 name-of-file.bin...

Question what and where is the command line. what and where is the terinal window is it at system then terminal then grome terminal. how do i get superuser privilages???

Why not use the packages in the Suse software repositories or download and install the rpm.

You can install the rpm manually from the command line e.g.
Code:
#rpm -Uvh somefile.rpm

If you've got .bin file, just open the terminal (find it in one of the menus on the desktop)
1. type 'su'
you will be asked about your root password (if you haven't set the root password yet, it's highly advisable that you do it)

2. navigate to the directory where you downloaded Realplayergold.bin
use the command: cd name_of_the_directory

3. 'chmod +x Realplayergold.bin' (make sure the spelling of the file name is exactly the same as the file you downloaded)


4. './Realplayergold.bin'

You will be asked some questions during installations, I don't remember what. One was: Where is your Mozilla browser?
you can check it typing in terminal: which mozilla
