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.

do the following

tar zvxf archive.tar.gz

then do

cd archive

then

./configure && make && make install

that might work you may also have t run make test

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

Do you mind to give us the header files or the error during the compilation process.
