    Hi!

    I have this error message, and can't start the program.
    I would appreciate your help.

    Thanx

      That's bizarre.  If you type "which mt" on the command-line as root do you get the same error?  On the surface it looks as though something is messed up with your system (bad RAM?).  Using the which(1) command should not generate a core dump.
