run the player from the command prompt and configure the plugin
I think I also had to delete the old player(5) and delete its plugin

I'm trying to go to bed so don't have time for details, sorry

NOTE... this sets up realplayer to handle .rpm (Real Player Media) This
makes downloading rpm files (red hat package) trickier. I can't use any
of Tucows automatic downloads of rpm files - realplayer tries to open
them rather than having them downloaded.

With Realplayer 7 properly installed all red hat package files need to
be downloaded by doing a shift-click (Tucows won't let you do this)
