Description David White 2003-03-05 04:31:04 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030206

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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. See description above.

Actual Results:  Hung dialog.  Unable to use RealPlayer8 for Linux on RC6.

Additional info:

Hopefully, you can provide a workaround?

Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2003-03-05 09:14:03 UTC
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
realplayer bug.
