    Thanks, I just wanted to make sure you were getting the sources from the
    right place. As to what's wrong, I can't help you currently, because I
    can't get the thing to install.

    You could try to rebrand it to type 9.

    as root:

    brandelf -f 9 /usr/local/lib/RealPlayer/realplay.bin

    But the syntax error, how would that get there? Try to make reinstall
    after a make distclean if branding fails.

    It's a little more mysterious than that.
    the Realplayer port is a Linux binary, so branding it for FreeBSD probably
    won't work. But here's what's odd -- I just installed
    linux-realplayer-10.0.2_1, and it seems to have installed OK. When I
    check its branding, I get:

    bender# brandelf /usr/local/lib/RealPlayer/realplay.bin
    File '/usr/local/lib/RealPlayer/realplay.bin' is of brand 'SVR4' (0).

    so it's not branded for Linux or FreeBSD! And yet it seems to be ok.

    And the 'Syntax error' the OP is getting makes no sense at all.


    My suggestion at this point - do

    brandelf /usr/local/lib/RealPlayer/realplay.bin
    file /usr/local/lib/RealPlayer/realplay.bin

    and report the results back.

    The 0 branding is for any non-BSD (i.e. System V based) Unix, like
    linux too. System V based Unixes (SVR4, Solaris 2.x, SCO ODT 3.0, AIX,
    A/UX, DELL, ...). They will run on BSD. I used to not put the -
    freeBSD in my fh client and I would run into this. I rebrand them and
    all is well. I might should download the correct ones just to be safe?

    You say you installed, did you do a make install using ports? If not
    remove the program and use the port. If you did use the port then here
    is some more info.

    Some programs can have `-DSVR4' added to the CFLAGS in their Makefile
    to generate a SVR4 bin. Maybe you should cd to /usr/ports/multimedia/
    realplayer(right spot?) and do a make config, and check the makefile
    for such flags.
