Problem Launching RealPlayer~ [solved]

Recommended Posts

Guest extremeJ

Hi guys. Need some help on my realplayer 10 here. I installed the realplayer without any problem. But when i try to run it by typing "realplay" in the console, the following message come up:

 

*** glibc detected *** free(): invalid pointer: 0x0828e830 ***

/usr/bin/realplay: line 75: 5669 Aborted $REALPLAYBIN "$@"

 

what should I do? I am using Mandriva 2006.

OH yes i am able to start now. But every time I start up real player I need to use the command you gave me, otherwise when i key in realplay the same error message will still occur. Is there any ways that allow me to start realplayer with the command realplay in the future?

Since I had installed the real player, can I re-use the installed codec? or I need to download the codec separately? Can mplayer use the real-codec-1.2-3plf.rpm as its codec which I found in the PLF repository?

I don´t know where the codecs from the realplayer rpm install so better be safe and install the plf package. Mplayer can use these (kmplayer is a gui for mplayer).

Well you can do: "export GTK_IM_MODULE=xim" in the root shell and you won't have any problem after that.
