Dear gurus,

I recently got a laptop with redhat Linux installed in it. I wanted to install real player that came in tar zip format.

Please tell me how to install them.

in most cases you can install with this commands :

./configure
make
make install

-------------

run this commands inside unziped directory.

if you have some README or INSTALL files there read thame with:

cat <filename> | more
