= Please send your final patch when you have it.
The patch is over 700 lines, the shar archive is only 300...
To avoid spamming the PR, here is the link:
1) The player needs linux-gtk, linux-pango, etc. Some of
these are not installed properly by ports, it seems. For
is EMPTY after the install of x11-toolkits/linux-gtk2.
I had to copy the real gdk-pixbuf.loaders from the
FreeBSD's install and adjust the pathes inside to enable
realplayer to use its own .png files.
Similarly, /compat/linux/etc/pango/pango.modules and
/compat/linux/etc/fonts/ had to be tweaked, which is,
probably, a bug in their respective ports.
2) The helixcommunity.org's download handler, apparently,
does not care, what file-name you ask for -- only the
number (643 in our case) matters.
For this reason I chose to keep the version inside the
name of the downloaded file -- linux-realplayer-10.0.1.rpm,
instead of RealPlayer10GOLD.rpm.
This thing is quite different from the older versions (8.cs2). Does
anything depend on it by default? If not, we may, as well, commit it.
Otherwise, we may simply adjust the download URLs, as Michael suggested
and upgrade after the release.
It is definetly time for a multimedia/realplayer -- built from the
finally available source.
