Realplayer8 hangs with RH 2.4.20-18.9 (623 bytes, text/plain)

Description Eric Mullinax 2003-03-12 22:17:27 UTC

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.3b) Gecko/20030210

Description of problem:
Realplayer v.8 hangs and won't run while using these kernel versions.  I tried
upgrading it, reinstalling, and then erasing and installing.  Neither of these
works.  RealOne, however, will run.  I then installed an older kernel 2.4.18-14
and RP8 will run.  Somewhere between then and 2.4.20-2.48 there's a flaw in the
kernel.  I know Phoebe is a beta, so I can't complain much.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.4.20-2.48, kernel-2.4.20-2.54

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RP8, if you haven't
2. Either load it manually, or click on a real player link in your browser, if
you have RP plugins installed 
3. The player will not load.  It loads in memory, but stalls after that.

Actual Results:  I saw nothing.  I checked the System Monitor, and it had loaded
into memory but that's it.

Expected Results:  It should open, and play the RP intro music.

Realplayer8 hangs with RH 2.4.20-18.9

Why artsdsp is needed to launch RealPlayer8?
