When I try to start PyPy, I get:

  bin/pypy: error while loading shared libraries: libbz2.so.1.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

This is on a SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 10.3 SP2.

This system does have:


As a quick experiment, I tried temporarily renaming it to   /lib/libbz2.so.1.0 but that didn't change the result. I also tried installing the bzip2 package from the rpm, but it said it was already installed.

Can anyone suggest a solution?
