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):
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?
