I have encountered this one a *lot* on my 550MHz AMD.  It seems that, to
RPM, the K6-2 looks like a hyper-fast Pentium MMX.  As a result, anything
packaged for PPro/PII/P!!! fails the architecture test.

Regarding RealPlayer, there is another version with the filename extension
'bin' and it is an ELF executable that does the installation for you, a la
Windows packages.  Not my preferred method, but it works.
