Description of problem:
Downloaded installer from URL, renamed and did the install as root. Downloaded
codecs for RealVideo 9 and copied the two required codecs into
/usr/lib/RealPlayer8/Codecs. Made a symlink from /usr/lib/RealPlayer8/realplay
to /usr/local/bin. As normal user, typed realplay and hit Enter. Configuration
wizard comes up. When I get to final screen of configuration wizard (select
connection speed), dialog hangs as soon as I select my speed (384K). Dialog
unresponsive, need Ctrl-C to kill it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. See description above.
Actual Results: Hung dialog. Unable to use RealPlayer8 for Linux on RC6.
Hopefully, you can provide a workaround?
This is not a bug in bash, or even Red Hat Linux, and this is not a support forum.
However, I happen to know that LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5 works around this
