libm is the standard math library, which many applications use. You 
probably just are missing some symlinks. For example, my /lib/libm.so.6 
is a symlink to libm-2.3.1.so. Check whether you have either 
"/lib/libm.so.6" or "/usr/lib/libm.so.6". You probably don't, which is 
why the realaudio library doesn't load. Try running ldconfig as root and 
see if it makes a symlink with one of those names. If not, you can try 
manually making one to your actual libm version. Read
