The installer in potato is written for an earlier version.  I edited
/var/lib/dpkg/info/realplayer.postinst to change the instances of
RealPlayer7 to RealPlayer8 and it installed without incident.  I also
made the same change in realplayer.prerm to avoid any problems if I
remove it in the future.  I understand that the installer in unstable
(possibly also testing) works with RealPlayer 8 asis.
