firefox was installed by their installer, so rpm doesn't know about 
it.  RealPlayer is RealPlayer-10.0.2.608-20041214

firefox is installed in /usr/local/firefox, and I believe everything 
works but RealPlayer.  Shockwave stuff is in firefox's plugins dir 
and works ok.  And I've moved a copy of the plugins dir 
from /usr/local/RealPlayer.plugins to /usr/local/firefox/plugins, but 
its still ignored.

Do you have anything at all that shows up in the edit->prefs windows 
to indicate Real is there?
