I've noticed that realplayer is really stupid when it comes to shared
libraries.  Try adding /usr/lib to your LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment
variable ("export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH" if you
use bash.  Chances are you don't have a LD_LIBRARY_PATH already, so
you can use "export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib").  

I had the same error you did when I installed real player, and this
seemed to fix everything.
