    Angry Need Help for YDL 5.0 on PS3


    Ok, so my problem is im trying to install Real Player 10 on my Ps3 using yellow dog. And im following the instructions on the Real website(www.real/linux) and when i type in the command "./RealPlayer10GOLD.bin" like it says to do it comes up with
    [root@localhost Mike]# ./RealPlayer10GOLD.bin
    bash: ./RealPlayer10GOLD.bin: No such file or directory

    Now i've never used linux before so this is making things using the command line pretty hard when you dont know the commands. lol
    Can Anyone help?

    oh and the file is on my desktop not in a folder.

    Why did you start a new thread? I thought you were getting help from a few people on another thread?

    First: Are you sure you're in the right directory? You need to use the "cd" command to move to the right directory.
    Code:
    cd /home/username/Desktop
    That isn't the exact command, as you'll have to replace "username" with your real username, and I'm not sure if that's where yellowdog keeps the directory folder. It will be close to that.

    Then,
    Code:
    ls -l
    Check that the realplayer file is actually there, and make sure it says "rwxrw-rw-" beside it. It's not important that it is precisely that, but it must start with "rwx", or you won't be able to execute it.

    Check those things and then get back to me.

    Also, it might be polite to put a notice on the previous thread to say that you've started a new thread.

    EDIT: Either you changed your username, or there are two people having exactly the same problem..... Something weird going on here....

    To answer the other user question. I just joined, i searched the forum for ydl ps3 stuff to try to find similar posts but found none. After using the commands recommended, i got this.

    -rw-rw-r-- 1 Mike Mike 5802563 Dec 10 22:34 RealPlayer10GOLD.bin

    does that mean I have to make it into a executible?

    Yes.
    Code:
    chmod +x RealPlayer10GOLD.bin
    su -
    <enter your root password>
    ./RealPlayer10GOLD.bin
    That should get it working for you.

    Sorry, I should have mentioned that after "su -" you will need to change back to /home/mike/Desktop before you can execute it.

    Sorry for forgetting that.

    Eh dont worry about that, but i did change the directory back to Desktop and it still gave me [Mike@localhost Desktop]$ su -
    Password:
    [root@localhost ~]# cd /home/Mike/Desktop
    [root@localhost Desktop]# ./RealPlayer10GOLD.bin
    -bash: ./RealPlayer10GOLD.bin: cannot execute binary file
    [root@localhost Desktop]#

    and its attribute is still showing the -rwxr

    RealPlayer10GOLD.bin: RealPlayer10GOLD.bin: cannot execute binary file

    Weird.

    This probably won't help, but you should use "su -" instead of "su". That will give you a full root environment, including the path. It might help, but it probably won't.

    Did you try downloading and installing the rpm instead?

    Apart from that, I'm out of ideas. Apologies.
