    Hello and Welcome!

    Which distro are you running? Fedora 8? 9? If 9, then try
    Code:
    rpm -ivh RealPlayer11GOLD.rpm
    Linux is case-sensitive, so GOLD is all caps. Let us know if you get an error.

    Hi jayd512,

    Thanks for your prompt reply.I checked the distro in /etc directory it is having Red Hat -Realease folder only.but don't know how to check whether fedora 8 or 9.

    Actually I tried with copy and paste with the name too,As it is case-sensitive.but no hope.

    Sorry for the wrong spelling name of the rpm file.Except this,is there any suggestion?


    Thanks & Regards,
    Mohammed Pasha.

    To check which version you have, execute
    Code:
    # cat /proc/version
    Also, a page that helped me a lot with Fedora was here.
