Someone please answer this question. I'm having trouble even getting the *.bin file to execute. I have done chmod u+x, but when I try to install it give me the error "cannot execute bin file" or something like that. I do this all from root! Help!

try getting the Real Player RPM File and installing it as root ..

http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat....i386.rpm.html

$ rpm -ivh *.rpm

That should work....

OR

I don't know what realplayer legacy is. I just know that legacy, when dealing with computers, usually means "old" or "outdated" and most of the time is dealing with hardware. I just downloaded the regular realplayer rpm and it works great. I haven't checked on a lot of things, but I did listen to a few minutes of .ram from my favorite streaming audio site oneplace.com. It worked great. It was a relief because I have gone for the past few years of using linux without being able to listen to streaming audio because of the wack *.bin file at the real.com site. I didn't even have to jump through hoops to get it integrated with mozilla. I use redhat 9.0 and immediately after I installed it, mozilla was opening up .ram's with it.
