RealPlayer9 on RH9 - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Hello, all. Have gotten some mixed signals while Googling for info regarding the installation of RealPlayer9-9.0.7.151-4.i386.rpm on a PC running RH9.0. RealPlayer9 requires libXm.so.2 from the Open Mofif 2.1 library and Opem Motif 2.2 is what is installed by RH9.0. The usual procedure of making a symbolic link for libXm.so.2 to point to the updated value doesn't work in this case. Has anyone got a solution short of having to offload Open Motif 2.2? I should add that RealPlayer8 is working fine with RH9.0. Thanks for your time and comment. Sincerely, John Wood (Code 5550) e-mail: [email]wooditd.nrl.navy.mil[/email] Naval Research Laboratory ...

    Not sure if it's what you wanted, but I think xine can play real audio at
    least (not sure about video).

    I just installed xine, when you scroll mouse over the UI, it crashes the
    computer, any idea how to solve it (I saw several posting reporting the
    same problem, so I don't think it's only my install)

    If all you want to do is watch Realmedia9 (video or audio), then you can
    update Realplayer8 to play it.
