From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2 i686; en-US; 0.9) Gecko/20010305 BuildID: 2001030508 After placing rpnp.so and raclass.zip from the RealPlayer 8 UNIX distribution in the mozilla/plugins or ~/.mozilla/plugins directory Mozilla will not register the Realplayer plugin at all. RealPlayer streams will not get played. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Copy rpnp.so and raclass.zip in $MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME/plugins/ 2. Run Mozilla 3. Watch Mozilla not register the plugin 4. Try viewing an embedded Realvideo clip and you'll get a "missing plugin" dialog Actual Results: Mozilla did not register the Realplayer plugin and embedded Real content was not shown. Expected Results: Mozilla should have registered the Realplayer plugin and embedded Real content should have been shown. This system is running Linux 2.4.2, glibc 2.2.1, XFree86 4.0.2. The plugin does work fine in Netscape 4.75.
see bug 56464 -- apparently this is a compiler version issue... are you using a gcc >= 2.95 ?
More precisely, are you using a Mozilla compiled with gcc >= 2.95? (like one of the 2.95 builds from mozilla.org)
I'm using a precompiled build from http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest/mozilla-i686-pc-linux-gnu.tar.gz. Is there something I could do to get around this problem? I'm using gcc 2.95.2 here so I guess building Mozilla myself wouldn't help at all. I'm marking this duplicate (couldn't find 56464 while searching since it was resolved) but I'd still like to get some help with the issue =) *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 56464 ***

actually, it's only when you build mozilla with gcc >= 2.95 that you can get the realplayer plugin to work... So either building yourself or getting the -gcc2.95 builds from the mozilla.org ftp site should do it.
Oh, that way :)... Thanks!
