Problem installing Real Player


whenever I try to install the bin file for real player it says the following



[family@ool-18beecce ~]$ chmod a+x RealPlayer10GOLD.bin
[family@ool-18beecce ~]$ ./RealPlayer10GOLD.bin
Extracting files for RealPlayer installation...Segmentation fault
[family@ool-18beecce ~]$

Edit: Did you try running it as root?

You could also try installing the RPM. When you go to http://www.real.com/ below the big button that says "Download RealPlayer" there is one that says "Advanced Installation / Download RPM Package".

Oh yeah, sometimes browsers associate ".rpm" with realplayer media or something like that. See if you can do "save as" or anything like that.

I tried that now and I tell it to open in "automatic install" or whatever it's called but when I do that the automatic install doesn't run and when I just save it to disk I can't put it in my home folder so I tried to do the following and as you can see it didn't work


[root@ool-18beecce Desktop]# yum install RealPlayer

You can only use yum to install stuff that is in the repositories. If you want to install some random RPM you downloaded, do:
Code:
rpm -Uvh whatever.rpm
