  1. You should mention the dependencies requiered. This will not run in a fresh Debian Lenny installations. Cheers!!

  2. you have install before ‘lsb’ from console first and then install realplayer

    1.- apt-get install lsb
    2.- dpkg -i RealPlayer11GOLD.deb
    and enjoy it!!!

  3. I know this is an old post, but it doesn’t seem to work anymore. At least on Ubuntu Pangolin Precise (12.04 LTS). Some kind of broken dependency claiming that my lsb is too old: “realplay:i386 depends on lsb (>= 3.1).”

  4. I get this too

    “realplay:i386 depends on lsb (>= 3.1).”

    help would be greatly appreciated
