In your RealPlayer8 directory there should be a file called
You need to run in as a _user_ for all _users_ that run netscape 4.77.
If you look in the file it says:
mkdir $HOME/.netscape >/dev/null 2>&1
mkdir $HOME/.netscape/plugins >/dev/null 2>&1
if [ ! -d $HOME/.netscape/plugins ] ;
abort "Could not create $HOME/.netscape/plugins."
this is where it copies the plugins - in
.netscape/plugins in your home directory.
Then restart netscape..
Then start netscape :)
Then in URL type about:plugins and you should get a list of all
the plugins that you have installed - Real Player should be there..
