Download the normal installer, named something like RealPlayer11GOLD.bin, instead of the RPM version. To use the installer and RealPlayer, you’ll need to get 32-bit versions of some common libraries. $ sudo apt-get install ia32-libs ia32-libs-gtk Navigate to the directory where you saved the installer and run: $ chmod +x .

For example, a backup user does not need to install software: hence, the backup user has rights only to run backup and backup-related applications. Any other privileges, such as installing new software, are blocked. The principle applies also to a personal computer user who usually does work in a normal user account, and opens a privileged, password protected account (that is, a superuser) only when the situation absolutely demands it. The principle of least privilege is widely recognized as an important design consideration in enhancing the protection of data and functionality from faults (fault tolerance) and malicious behavior (computer security).

Benefits of the principle include: Better system stability. In practice, true least privilege is neither definable nor possible to enforce.
