You really ought to install the updates if that box is anywhere near the
Internet.

But that sounds like you've got a problem either with the box or with
the RPM. Check that you've got plenty of free space on all your
filesystems. Run the command
sha1sum RealPlayer-10.0.6.776-20050915.i586.rpm
on both the troublesome box and on one where the RPM worked: if the
output is different, you've got a corrupt RPM. (Obviously, you should
use a copy that you successfully used to install: don't take a possibly
dud copy to a working box and use that). If necessary, re-download the
RPM.

It's possible that this is a symptom of RAM going bad. You might want to
use memtest86 (available on Fedora boot CDs) to check the memory on this
computer. Warning: you should at least leave it running overnight.

Hope this helps,

James.
