Actually, this is a particular irritant. Why does it have to
be done in the postinst? Why can't I have /usr/sbin/inst-realplayer?
So I can download and install at my leaisure, and I do not have to
reinstall realplayer installer to get a new copy? Or have the stupid
thing want to connect out every time there is a minor upgrade to the
I would much prefer a installer script rather than an
installer package which does it in postinst. Actually, this itch may
have gotten to the point I want to do something about it, if the
maintainers of realplayer are averse to this change.
