Installed FC5 yesterday. For some reason RealPlayer won't play video, has anyone else seen this? After discovering this I replaced my older version of RealPlayer with the current one from real.com with the same results. Symptoms: BBC website video clips the RealPlayer logo stays in place, sound plays. Loading realplayer separately and pointing it at clips (including from the Real website), sound plays and it sizes as if it's playing an audio only file, resizing reveals the video window contains only the Real logo. Have tried with and without XVideo. Have tried with and without helix installed. Have tried installing from rpm and installing in /home/ian/opt/RealPlayer from .bin. (But not all combinations thereof) [ian@atlas ~]$ rpm -q compat-libstdc++-33 compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-55.fc5 Helix player on Ogg/Theora works fine.
Silly me: # setenforce 0 Disabling selinux also fixes problems I was having with xvidcore and DVDRip. And the atrpms nvidia package causing the window manager start on login to fail (resulting in no window frames). This time I'm just going to leave it off, all it's ever caused me is trouble. (Thanks to Stephen and Kam for suggestions though) -- imalone
