When I set up a new KDE-based (SuSE) machine just 2 days ago, Real Player 10
was very buggy 'out of the box'. It must be avoided, in my humble opinion,
as it lacks functionality and is spyware by default. It froze constantly,
sound was often cut off periodically, it was unable to handle filenames with
'difficult' symbols (e.g. %20) and that's just the beginning of it all...
Have you tried uninstalling and re-installing using the package management
tool? If I recall correctly, Mandrake(driva) has a graphical front-end
similar to YaST for that task. I only know Mandrake, I'm afraid...
