mwalam,
I don't understand what you mean when you say that 'the website doesnot proceed to check the system'. Can you explain that?

The .exes are usually windows binaries (unless they are .net assemblies which, despite the resemblance are completely different creatures). You need to have wine installed to run windows binaries. If your system has the binfmt-misc configuration for wine, you can just execute them like you would a regular linux binary, otherwise you type

wine <programname>

to execute it. If it's a .net assembly, you need mono <http://www.go-mono.org/>. Unlike wine, it doesn't come with most systems, although it's really easy to install it.

mwalam,. i figured out what you are trying to ask.

1.First of all, i assume that you mean, you cant download a version of real player for redhat linux.Worry not.Just download this real player 9 for linux rpm from:

http://cambuca.ldhs.cetuc.puc-rio.br/xi ... 4.i386.rpm

(This is a complete 7 mb download, and i have tested it on my redhat 9 box)

After download, install it by using rpm -Uvh rpmname.rpm command

You will then have real player 9 installed on rh9, and u can play all the files real player can play, on ur redhat box.

2.For running the programs issue, there are many types of files that can be run.Some are scripts like a .sh script which can be run using ./scriptname command in terminal.SOme are binaries like a program binary for mplayer which can be run by using simply the program command gmplayer in terminal.You can also browse a folder, and click on a script or program binary to run it, or u can also run them through terminal as i mentioned before, the the thing is they must be some executable filetype like a script or a program binary.Non exectable files like a text file are run through an external viewer/application like gedit.

Asslam o alaikum,

openmotif21-2.1.30-8.i386.rpm is on the 2nd disk of RH9. Install it by using
rpm -Uhv openmotif21-2.1.30-8.i386.rpm

When it is installed, libXm.so.2 will be in /usr/X11R6/lib. I hope you can install realplayer9 without any problem.

Allah hafiz

Hi, i forgot to mention real player 9 ahs an openmotif dependency.Just download and install:

ftp://ftp.rpmfind.net/linux/redhat/9/en ... 8.i386.rpm

using rpm -Uvh command.

Then install the real player 9 rpm using the rpm - Uvh command as well.

Good luck!
