Huh?  I have kernel 2.2.6-ac1, and RealPlayer 5 works fine.  You just
have to follow the directions in /usr/src/linux/Documentation/Changes
(in the source for any 2.2.x kernel) for 'patching' the rvplayer
executable to work with 2.2.x kernels.  As for waiting for G2 on Linux,
don't hold your breath -- last I heard, Real decided *not* to finish
porting it to Linux (the player at least) for some reason or other.
(I could be wrong, though.)
