Gentoo has been running great and I really love it's performance. However, I just tried to emerge realplayer and did not succeed. Below is what it reported after the emerge command. I've downloaded the file "rp8_linux20_libc6_i386_cs2_rpm" which I found in the ebuild comments, but have no idea of how to install it. Any useful ideas would be greatly appreciated. Or perhaps an assist in removing my head from wherever it's currently hosted.

Thanks in advance,
r00t



----------------------------------
!!! rp8_linux20_libc6_i386_cs2_rpm not found in /usr/portage/distfiles.
>>> /usr/portage/media-video/realplayer/realplayer-8-r2.ebuild has fetch restriction turned on.
>>> This probably means that this ebuild's files must be downloaded
>>> manually. See the comments in the ebuild for more information.
!!! emerge aborting on /usr/portage/media-video/realplayer/realplayer-8-r2.ebuild .

Just put this file in /usr/portage/distfiles and run emerge again.
