Ximian evolution asks for

Hi there,
my first post here since I can not find any relevant information regarding the problem I encounter with my evolution upgrade session.

I am using SuSE 8.2, blackbox wm, Mozilla, OpenOffice and evolution for the mail.
I installed evolution 1.2.3 from the distro. That worked fine.
I upgraded with the recommended from ximian wget command to evolution 1.4.5. The upgrade prog downloaded a lot, 13MB and installed, giving messages that all works fine.

The problem is I can't start evolution anymore now it is upgraded cause it gives me an error message that:
"evolution: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

So I searched my HDD for the files and found that Mozilla and OpenOffice use this file too in there own directory. Mozilla and OpenOffice are installed in the the opt directory.

What can I do?! I have the feeling I should copy the file somewhere or make a link to it but I don't know where evolution searches for it.

Until yet I have found all the answers to my questions on the web with google, on this site (great great great site) and in the SuSE manuals but now I am stuck with this and hope someone can help me out.

Thanks in advance for the kind answer.

OK forget the question above this is how I solved it.

I just copied the following files requested by Evolution from the Mozilla directory to the /usr/lib directory:

I have no idea if that is a bad solution or not but it worked for me.

Good day.
