Real Player


Hello, I am currently running fedora core 4 on my laptop and I have forgotten most of the commands from before when I ran this OS on my old desktop, and I am in need of assistance. I have just installed Real Player 10 and it wont open, I have a feeling its missing a required lib. I think its, libstdc.so.5 but how would you install this? I can't remember. Help would be great

~Thanks.

install the rpm "libstdc++5-3.3.1-2mdk.i586.rpm"
on your system and your problem would definitely be solved..
the command would be
#rpm -ivh libstdc++5-3.3.1-2mdk.i586.rpm

Your solution works perfectly for Mandriva (and derivatives), but on Fedora Core the package to install is called compat-libstdc++-33.

Thats pretty lucky since the rpm isn't meant for Fedora Core based distros. It was made for Mandrake/Mandriva and its generally not a god idea to use rpms meant for one distro on another because you can end up with broken packages.
