Re: Realplayer in stable



I'm running potato and had the same question.....after wondering what to do 
with the rp7 installer since the only version available was rp8.

I searched freshmeat for RealPlayer, was linked to the RP's main site, and 
downloaded rp8_linux20_libc6_i386_cs1.bin from there.  I changed the perms to 
make it executable and voila.  It installed itself.  Almost too easy, but 
both Netscape and Konqueror now handle the streams seamlessly.

May not be the *debian* way, but if you want RealPlayer as I did, well, you 
do what you gotta do.
