MySQL, RealPlayer Certify to Linux Standard Base

Filed under
Linux

The Free Standards Group (FSG), a nonprofit organization dedicated to developing and promoting open source software standards, announced that two applications on Linux -- RealPlayer and the MySQL database -- are certifying to the Linux Standard Base.

The result will be decreased build, porting and support efforts for the software developers and increased choice for end users. For the first time, a single RealPlayer or a MySQL package will run on the many LSB-certified Linux distributions including Red Hat, Novell, Ubuntu, Red Flag and many others. Both vendors plan on making the next versions of their products LSB-compliant.
