1. Difficulties with RealPlayer G2 beta
I'm having some difficulties with RealPlayer G2 beta, running on RH6,
kernel 2.2.12. I have browsed through dejanews and searchlinux and not
found anything related to my problem, so I don't think this is a faq.
I've downloaded the G2 beta for linux, both as RPM and as the
self-extracting installer and gotten the same results with both. I'm just
trying to run it from the command line -- I'll worry about Netscape later.
First, and this is really annoying, it asks me for my registration info
EVERY TIME I start the stupid program. Is this normal? Note that it
*does* create the file .RealNetworks_RealShared_00 in my home directory,
which does contain the registration info.
Second, I've downloaded a number of .ram's, which are pointers to the real
streaming audio source on the web. When I play any of them, the player
downloads, buffers, and proceeds to emit some of the most unpleasant sounds
I've ever heard in my life: scratchy, *REALLY* loud, and way too slow. (By
that, I mean the kind of effect you get if you play a 78 single at
33.3rpm.) I've tried messing with both of the options under sound card
compatilibity settings. These do have an effect, but the sound is still
horrible. (Incidentally, these settings aren't preserved over a restart
Is it simply the case that my sound card isn't supported? What's the
The sound-related lines from /etc/conf.modules are:
alias sound sb
alias midi opl3
options opl3 io=0x388
options sb io=0x220 irq=5 dma=1 dma16=5 mpu_io=0x330
And /proc/modules says:
nls_iso8859-1 2020 1 (autoclean)
nls_cp437 3548 1 (autoclean)
vfat 9180 1 (autoclean)
fat 30464 1 (autoclean) [vfat]
opl3 11208 0
sb 33620 0
uart401 5968 0 [sb]
sound 57240 0 [opl3 sb uart401]
soundlow 300 0 [sound]
soundcore 2372 6 [sb sound]
The sound hardware in question is on my motherboard, the Intel AL440LX.
Normal sound under Linux works fine: I can play .au files, QuickTime movies
with xanim, and the sound in Civilization:Call To Power works fine.
I've got the player installed to ~/libexec/RealPlayerG2, and
REALPLAYER_HOME is set appropriately, according to the README.
Is this just an example of how beta G2 is under Linux, or what?
