Trouble runnin aMule

I installed aMule under Mandriva 2007 Free. When I ran it I receive the message:

[root@localhost download]# amule
amule: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
[root@localhost download]#

I search in the internet and install the via urpmi.

The trouble persists.

I uninstall aMule and install it again. I was hopping that it becomes to run ok since I install it with present.

But the trouble persists after re-install aMule. I think that I must create a symbolic link somewhere. But I have no idea where.

Would you please give me help? Is there another libraries that must be installed?

Greetings from Sao Paulo - Brazil

1) Have you checked that /usr/lib/ exists ?
2) Does the problem persist if you run amule as normal user ?
3) Is there a reason why you want to run amule as root ?

edit - debsearch says that libbfd is part of package 'binutils'. Check if you have that installed.

1. In the first time I ran aMule the library didn't exists. I found it in the internet and installed. The trouble persists. Then I though that if I re-install aMule with the library already installed probably the new aMule installation will run OK. It didn't

2. I try to ran it as a user other than "root" and had exactly the same trouble;

3. No!

I discovered via "rpm -qa" that "binutils-" is present.

Thank you in advance
