Linux header file

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.

gurus,

I have unzipped the file. But now the problem is with header files. I clicked something that says install. But now its not working coz it cannot compile. Please tell me how to install uncompiled programs..

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
