    Can a .bin game be installed in either windows and/or linux by the simple fact that it is a .bin file? Becouse binary is binary right? I just have to compile so it becomes a linux game. Or Am I totally bloody wrong?

    My very best regards.

    Yes you can install it in Windows. If is windows game then you cant run it on linux OS but you can extract it only. Im sure that there are softwares that can be able to run Windows games etc. If my answer is not satisfy you then add me onother comment.

    2 sikandar:

    Hey, man try this(if we’re talking about Ubuntu):

    1. sudo apt-get install libstdc++5
    2. then you make the realplayer binary file executable:
    sudo chmod +x RealPlayer10GOLD.bin
    3. then execute the binary:
    4. when prompted, choose this install location and press enter to accept rest of defaults:
    5. refresh the gnome panel to have realplayer appear:
    sudo killall gnome-panel

    If you need Fedora mans for installation of RealPlayer with libstdc++ error, check this link by shift2012

    sikandar :

    if you dont have that library you can download through those links or apt-get , yum.

    or click here

    Fedora 6

    Fedora 7

    Also you can use : yum install if you have yum (login as root) or yum install libstdc++-33 or yum install compat-libstdc++-33 or
    sudo apt-get install compat-libstdc++-33

    The real problem as I see it is that the RealPlayer10GOLD.rpm package wasn’t properly created to require the libstdc++ package as a dependency.

    This is the exact reason why I stick to Microsoft Windows. I click on the program I want to install and then can forget everything except clicks to accept defaults. What do I find when I want to install RealPlayer 10? Well, GOBBLE-DI-GOOK – totally unclear for a non-nerd like me. Till Linux can do better, i’ll not buy any more Linux (bought eee PC – which is otherwise great), There has to be an in-built installer which does things automatically for us simpletons! (

    Download realplayer for linux and then you can go and right click on the icon of the file go properties and make it ‘is executable’ ok an then you can just double click the icon and it will run automatically.

    I am so grateful for the guide.I just managed to install RealGold 11.bin on Fedora 7 and I can now play back .mp3 files.Once again thanks so much

    why don’t you just get vlc???
    much simpler. plays everything realplayer does and it is so much lighter. from what i understand vlc is also better supported.
