    RealPlayer has a native Linux version. There are plenty of MP3 players for Linux as well, such as XMMS, amaroK, and JuK.

    I don't use RealPlayer in Linux, so I can't help you with that. Is there a particular reason you must use RealPlayer to play your MP3s? As I mentioned before, there are plenty of other MP3 players that work with Linux.

    actually i want a player which can play all types of files
    for example : rm,avi,mpeg,mkv etc..
    since i just installed linux , i am basically used to using windows
    besides real dosent seem to support playlists(or does it?)

    please suggest a player which also has playlist functionality

    XMMS, amaroK and JuK all come with the ability to do playlists. If you want a multiple-format media player you might do a search in this forum for xine or mplayer. They play just about any audio/video format if you download the correct codecs.
