real player installation
I have Mandriva 2008.1 Spring and am trying to install real player. I down loaded real player 11 rpm and when i double click the file it asks if i want to install it then it blips to a small window for just a second and then stops. package manager doesn't have it at all. what am i doing wrong?
Use the rpm command instead of double clicking on the package e.g.
RPM will show detailed output if there is any problem. Post that output back.
rpm -Uvh somefile.rpm
Try following the steps in this thread to see it will work for you:
