Rhapsody music service

Has anyone been able to get Realplayer Rhapsody ( to work in Linux? I have tried using wine with Fedora Core 1, with both a real and a fake windows installation but nothing works yet.

It can be done if you care to install NeTraverse's Win4Lin.

To do this you will need to:

- verify that your distro is supported by Win4Lin
- check all other system requirements
- have a bootable copy of Win98 or Win98(SE)
- download/purchase/install a copy of Win4Lin

I use it on my SuSE 9.0 distro and it works fine with Rhapsody. After you install Win4Lin just open the program, then download and install the Rhapsody executable from within the Windows environment. It will ask you for permission to install some Mediaplayer files (requires some 7.1 components) but after that it will run just fine.
