I have built a .deb package using Feisty dependences for Realplayer 10 with pbuilder.


Download the Realplayer .deb.package (http://mikesplanet.net/feisty/realplay/realplay_10.0.8-0ubuntu3_i386.deb)
Install with gdebi or
sudo dpkg -i realplay_10.0.8-0ubuntu3_i386.deb


Full sources can be found at http://mikesplanet.net/feisty/realplay/

Please let me know if you have any problems with this package.

Why would we need the .deb file when we can get the .bin file from http://www.real.com/linux ?

Why would you use a .bin rather than a .deb? Much easier to remove a .deb, means nothing can interfere with dpkg because dpkg is kept aware, etc. Far better to keep everything under one package system.

Thanks a lot! Works flawlessly :)
Just a thought: Change the first link and the command line, because you may have happened to rename the files, so they are not accessible through the first link anymore + the command wouldn't work since the files now have a different name :)

Update: I used the old package from Edgy instead which works for me:

Please let me know if you have any problems with this package.

I found that following this link took me to the actual directory that contains the file, where I had no problem downloading it.

I moved this to Outdated T&T, since the link appears to be dead.
