Recently I've found out there are some radio programs (specifically, baseball
broadcasts from espn) that broadcast over the 'net.  They say to use the
'RealAudio' software to listen, but that only works in Winbloze.  Does anyone
know of a Linux alternative that would work with these programs?  Thanks.

        How about RealAudio?  There's one for Linux -- go to their site.

According to the README file in my /usr/local/lib/raplayer directory, it came
from:

***************************************************************
                RealAudio Player 2.0 Beta 4 (Unix)
                    from Progressive Networks
***************************************************************

        For the latest information see http://www.RealAudio.com

Has anyone been able to get the raplayer (2.0, Beta 4) to run
successfully on kernel versions > 2.0.0?  I'm currently running
kernel 2.0.21, with the following output from "cat /dev/sndstat":

Sound Driver:3.5.4-960630 (Mon Sep 23 10:02:45 EDT 1996 root,
Linux pspc52.poli.duke.edu 2.0.20 #24 Tue Sep 17 15:57:29 EDT 1996 i586)
Kernel: Linux pspc52.poli.duke.edu 2.0.21 #27 Mon Sep 23 10:02:54 EDT 1996 i586
 (etc).

With this kernel, and everyone since 2.0.0, every attempt to play
a realaudio file from within netscape (v3.0 96241) yields a dialog
from raplayer with:

Player Alert!
An error occurred when trying to connect to the RealAudio Server.

I read the technical notes from realaudio pointing to the USSLite,
but installing this yields the same problem.

This will not be particularily helpful, but yes it works for me.

Sound Driver:3.5.4-960708 (Thu Aug 22 23:34:26 MDT 1996 root,
Linux thor.xon.cuug.ab.ca 2.0.10 #12 Tue Aug 13 14:03:15 MDT 1996 i586)
Kernel: Linux thor.xon.cuug.ab.ca 2.0.10 #13 Thu Aug 22 23:37:00 MDT 1996 i586
(etc).

I can't offer much in the way of advice, since AFAIK, I just stuck it in as
per the instructions (except for the part about upgrading to 3.0.1) and it
worked.

You mentioned that it would not work with Netscape, does it work when you run
it with the thankyou.ra file? (maybe it will give you more information if you
run it manually).

Is something else running on 7070? (In my ra preferences, it says that is the
UDP port it is using).

I'm using 2.0.19 with the same setup as you, and it's working fine,
aside from what seems to be a CPU problem:  when I try to listen to a
28.8 feed, the sound goes all choppy, like chunks of it are being
lost, even though I'm only getting 2-3% packet loss.

xosview shows my CPU is *extremely* busy decoding a 28.8 stream, while
it's pretty good with a 14.4.  I'm using a 486DX2/66 with 16 megs of
RAM - am I right in assuming this just isn't enough?  The raplayer
wants more CPU cycles?

Okay, I've found a solution that works for me.  Using kernel 2.0.21,
and OSS/Linux 3.5.6a, and completely re-installing raplayer, it
now works.  One step that I missed before, and may be responsible
was to delete my old ~/.raplayerrc file.

I'm also running into choppy sound, but I don't think it's a CPU
problem, since xosview isn't showing a lot of heavy CPU hit.

Thanks for your help.

Anyone out there have an idea when RealAudio 3.0 will come out
for Linux? The download site allows you to select Linux a.out
or Linux ELF, so that's a good sign, but then I get a note
saying it's not available. :(

Howdy David!
   I was able to d/l and install RealAudio 3.0 without problems on 9/25
(?) or thereabouts. Perhaps another try might be good.

Not true. Check out realaudio's web page (www.realaudio.com?) for a
version that works fine with Linux.

1. RealPlayer RealAudio, Cannot locate RealAudio decoder

Dear Readers,

I have installed RealPlayer 5.0 on my Linux Debian 2.1 box. However I have
struck the following problem, every time I try to play a realaudio file I
get the following message:
---------------------------------------------------------------------
File compression not supported. Cannot locate the requested RealAudio
decoder. Error 38.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

I have tried to find more information from the Real Audio website, but I
have not been able to get any further.

Is there anybody who can help me solve this problem.

Many thanks,

Henk
