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?
