Installing Realplayer 10


Can someone advise me how I install realplayer 10 on my linux box.

Its running Fedora Core 2, Kde 3.2.3.

I usually install programs using yum, but this one isn't in the list.

So I download the rpm from here but when I try to use kpackager to install it I get this error
<home/user/network/download/linux/RealPlayer10GOLD.rpm';echo RESULT=$?
error: Failed dependencies:
RealPlayer8 = 0: is needed by (installed) RealPlayer8-plugin-

Now I do ready have realplayer 8 installed, so I don't know what else it wants.

I then tried to install the binary and got
Extracting files for RealPlayer installation...
Error: short read (6489660/6757796 bytes) (Invalid argument)
.rm: cannot remove directory `./hxsetup': Device or resource busy
Broken pipe

I'd appricate any advice, as I've no idea what to try next.

Thanks Mobassir , but this is for realone, I'd like to install the new realplayer 10, a friend has pointed out that the plug-in could be the cause so I'll remove that and try it again.

remove the plugin
install from the bin file provided on real's site

(download it, su, chmod it 777, ./file.bin)

you'll want to install the player to the path /usr/local/RealPlayer (case sensitive)
