This is probably the command line for running "rvplayer" is set incorrectly
in Netscape (probably in your ~/.mailcap file). Start Netscape, open menu
Edit / Preferences, then open up Navigator / Applications, scroll through
the list and find "RealPlayer 5.0" or "audio/x-pn-realaudio", then click the
"Edit..." button, then, at the "Application:" field, change
"rvplayer%s" to "/usr/X11R6/bin/rvplayer %s". Note the space before "%s".
Hope this helps! :-)
