I ve been told yes and no, im a little confused
Real Player only runs on a PC, but there are probably alternatives or similar programs that can run on a Mac
thanks ill have a look now
found a website which says u can watch free football on the net using a mac, or did think they took that bit out now.
Says u need real player and u should be fine
Wrong! real player has always been available for mac: sys req. The real.com site only shows you info relating to the platform you're using.
Just head over to http://real.com/ and click the "free realplayer" button in the top right of the screen, you'll need to feed them an email address and password to download it.
I didn't think that was right - rather spiffy it only shows the specs of the rig you are on.
did anyone say why yet?
Since we are "pwning" kc, also works on Linux:
Ohh baby love me long time, feels so good
I don't really see how I was pwned, and if we want to add to the dog pile, let's boot every OS out there and visit the site to find out what else its compatible with
I'll stick my neck out for you KCNY and tell you I would be AMAZED to see that thing run on Solaris...
works on Suse 10
I think it comes loaded on Suze 9.3 if I remember right. I have that but don't use it since I can't get the wireless to work on it.
upgrade to 10 ejn...works fabulous out of the box.
I have a us robotics router and usb thumbdrive kit that does not have any linux support so it does not matter if I upgraded. eventully I will be able to get this comp plugged back in to the router directly and it will not be a problem.
There is even a build for HP-UX. I think they got their bases with regards to OS's covered
Are you sure you want to stick your neck out?
/me turns turtle... :dead:
maybe I should go hunting down a VAX Alpha build just for kicks....
I sure as heck KNOW there is none for any IBM mainframe OS like MVS or VM/CMS.
But yeah - I'm amazed
This has to be one of those most technically thorough thread I've seen in awhile
*Wonders if it runs on Windows 1.0* :smoker:
It looks really crap on a mac, wow.
Then again, looks worse on Windows.
RP Alternative FTW.
