Real Player


Please verify one thing first... for anything to be installed in Redhat Linux 9.0, the root login has to be used?

I installed Real Player from a .bin file in the root login under KDE Environment. Now when I try to run it in the other login it shows me a dialog box with "Permission Deined" as message...

How do I solve this...
Is it essential to set some rights for other users or is it because of the environment?

If you've installed it actually IN /root or a subdir of that, then no other user will be able to run it because they don't have read permission to /root (root's home). Run the installer again but install to somewhere sensible like /usr/local/realplayer and then make a symlink from /usr/local/realplayer/realplay to /usr/local/bin
