the output of /usr/bin/realplay9 &
but for the above command of /usr/bin/realplay9 &
i only get the above output and then another command line
Linux 2.4.20-19.9 i686 i686 GNU/Linux
+ Exit 5 /usr/bin/realplay9
Red Hat Linux release 9 (Shrike)
just for giggles... your /usr/bin/realplay9 permissions are a little
different from mine ..
mine was achieved by
chmod 777 /usr/bin/realplay9
and yours is 755 .. but even after changing it over
so that the output looks like
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 764 Jun 22 20:36 /usr/bin/realplay9
the command of realplay as a user still doesn't work.
i think we are making headway..
any ideas from here?
