I have KDE 3.5 going so an X session is up and running, but I think it may 
still be an X problem. I've compared the output of ldd realplay.bin against 
what is found in /compat/linux/usr/lib, /lib, /usr/lib, /usr/local/lib, 
and /usr/X11R6 and found that some are missing. I did a portupgrade -R 
linux-realplayer, but this changed nothing. The missing libraries are: => /lib/ (0x282da000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x2878a000) => /lib/ (0x28886000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x2888e000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x28892000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x2889b000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x2889e000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x28938000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x28941000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x2894a000)
I'm using Xorg. I am definitely no expert but I think that these are mostly 
non-Xorg. Does using Xorg mean no realplayer?
