If this is a feature you'd like to see, file a feature request. The team might have seen it reading this, but it's easier to know for sure what they are thinking if you file it.

No glibc2.2 support
sadly, realplayer 10 requires glibc2.3.

realplayer 8 etc worked fine on glibc2.2, but realplayer 10 requires glibc2.3.

it's relatively simple to make glibc2.2 builds (id software does it for example) and they work fine on glibc2.3.

Re: RealPlayer can't play anything usefull?
What version are you using? Can you file a bug in the helixcommunity bugzilla if this still doesn't work for you?

RealPlayer can't play anything usefull?
After installing RP in FC2, I can't play files claimed in description. I tried mpg, avi and mp3. I always get error message "Unsupported document type". Is this by design, or am I missing something?

Thanks for any help,

Helix Player
Those looking for RealPlayer functionality on Linux and other UNIXy systems should really try out the Helix Player (http://freshmeat.net/projects/helixplayer/). This version is the main release that RealNetworks' developers are working on.

Help! RealPlayer appears not to work with OSS!
hey all, I'm using the commercial OSS driver (because it's the only one that works with the hardware) for the Intel 845G chipset audio from 4Front. When I try to play a file with RealPlayer, it returns cannot open audio device. Yet no other audio programs are running and read/write/execute privilages are set for all users on /dev/audio and /dev/dsp. Any help?

On the page that asks for email, etc., when asked to select the Operating System, select Linux 2.x (has to be non-rpm version), then at the next page the d/l links are for RP 8.0, SCROLL DOWN, and there will be a push-button to download the new version of realplayer.
