RealPlayer and Mandrive 2006 64bit edition

Hello Experts...
My new problem in linux is that i cant run my RM. files that needs realplayer.
I have mandrive2006 64bit edition and it seems that realplayer for linux cant be executed! i duno why! it gives me an error:

./RealPlayer10GOLD.bin: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

what the hell is that! how can i solve this problem?
does realplayer dont want to be installed cause i have 64bit edition of linux or becasue of something else??

if it cant be installed on 64bit edition is there any other alternatives than realplayer??

you just need to install the libstdc++ package. I'm not a Mandriva user so I don;t know how you'll go about that... although it should be simple.

Otherwise there are a lot of linux player that will do *rm (and better the RP ) Check out mplayer

Seriously i am disapointed and mad at linux
I cant install the mplayer becasue of some GCC not supported as mine seems to be better than the one compiler that should comple the installation.
and it seems that real player it self cant be installed on linux 64 bit the same as flash player for web browsers..
seems linux is not supported & almost at all and that sux! i cant run anything smoothly and & in order to install a program i have to do like 10 things to make the installation happen..
i am newbie at linux and im currantly using windws XP Media center
it is fully supported and smooth and i can install or get anything work on it.
I am really mad now at linux and i almost see no use of letting it on my hard drive.. i cant install anything.. my complier isnt supported?? DUH its 2006 and a good destribution MANDRIVA!!!! why do they make linux destributions that are not going to be supported before by software developers by 10 years ??
i have spent 10 days in order to make my internet connection work on linux.. i wounder how many years i will wait untill the software developers support my linux 2006 64 bit edition mandriva...
i swear i wont spend a day downloading linux 32 bit edition in order to make FLASH and REAL PLAYER work..

First I'd recommend you take a breath and calm down.

Then I want to point out that most of your problems seem to be with the 64bit not with linux itself. It really may be worth it to try to switch to the 32bit if it saves you much frustration. There are still a lot of issues that need to get worked on with all the 64bit distros, and it will take some time until they're as fully functional as the 32 bit.

On the other hand there are ways to get what you want to work with the 64bit. I've heard some people say that they have gotten the flash player to work just by installing the plugin manually, which consists of copying two files to your browsers plugin folder. Look at the readme file that's included it the file you download for specifics about how to do this. I personally haven't gotten that to work yet, not sure why, but there are some other players out there that also can play flash files. I'm at my mom's house right now and I can't remember exactly which one I had before, but you could probably find out with some googling.

Similarly there are other options for real player as well. If you could be more specific about what happened when you tried installing mplayer by giving us exactly what the error was we might be able to help. However it sounds like you're having problems with dependencies. There's a tool for mandriva called urpmi that I think can automatically resolve these (I only used Mandriva for a short time so my memory is a bit fuzzy about exactly what it could do). If you haven't already set this up you should look into it since it will make installing programs a lot easier.

Hopefully you don't give up too soon, switching to linux can be a bit tough at first, but I think it's worth if you stick with things.
