    I do not see any RealPlayer in the standard repos. From where did you install? From a repository? Just installed an RPM? Using YaST > Software manager?

    And the deinstall: you use YaST > software manager? It is there in the llist and you clicked for Removal? When not then how?

    Got the player /rpm from here
    https://player.helixcommunity.org/

    But the player was not upto the mark.hence tried to uninstall using the software package manager ( YaST > Software manager).When it reies to uninstall,it fails and says

    "Subprocess failed. Error: RPM failed: prerm called with unknown argument `0'
    error: %preun(realplay-11.0.2.1744-1.i386) scriptlet failed, exit status 1"

    rpm -e realplayer
    or
    rpm -e realplay

    result is the same,guess UI(YAST/Software package management) uses the same code


    Code:
    linux-ur8q:/home/admin # rpm -e realplay
    prerm called with unknown argument `0'
    error: %preun(realplay-11.0.2.1744-1.i386) scriptlet failed, exit status 1
    linux-ur8q:/home/admin #

    Same for me a long time ago, go to yast -> software management and
    search for realplayer, then delete manually all the files the rpm
    contains, and then install vlc or mplayer intead of realplayer
