    Default where is installed application?

    Hi,
    as an absolute newbie I downloaded my first application. RealPlayer11GOLD.rpm
    From info on this forum, I managed to install the package with the rpm command as root on openSuSE 11.1
    When done, it said finished.
    But now I cannot find the player. Where do I go wrong?

    Open a terminal and type:

    realplay

    I think that's correct, then hit enter.
    It should setup mozilla helpers which is OK, reject any request to update, it will fail.

    11.1 is ending support soon
    Lifetime - openSUSE

    Realplayer sucks BTW and is not needed.

    I didn't know people were still using RealPlayer ...
    I don't know the exact name of the RealPlayer package. But you can try ...

    rpm -ql $(rpm -qa | grep -i real) | grep -i real

    It should display some relevant filenames.

    It might still be available in an openSUSE repo ... I dunno.

    I also hate realplayer, but I need something for dvd playback. What do you suggest?

    There are a lot: mplayer, dragonPlayer (KDE), totem (Gnome), vlc, etc

    * I'm not sure dragonPlayer was already in 11.1

    I tried your command and indeed a long list of files. But (dumb question) how do I get it running ?
    Is it may be a better idea to upgrade to 11.3 first. If so, can I do that from this running version?

    I just wanted to find out the name of the application (but it's probably 'realplay') and if it installed a desktop file (to provide an entry in KDE or Gnome menu).

    Definitely!

    You need to do a fresh install
    Keeping /home is possible but you retain crud and an older file system

    I say backup and format everything with a fresh install.
