    VirtualBox: VBoxManage fails to start

    I attempt to configure a fresh installed VirtualBox 1.5.0_OSE on Gutsy.
    Here my command sequence:
    sudo su
    cd /usr/lib/virtualbox
    ./VBoxManage

    ./VBoxManage results in this error message:
    ./VBoxManage: error while loading shared libraries: VBoxDDU.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    ls -l VBoxDDU.so prints:
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 85892 2007-10-15 16:54 VBoxDDU.so

    so VBoxDDU.so obviously exists in /usr/lib/virtualbox

    What is wrong?

    Yes, I'member of the virtualbox group.

    Do I need to define some environment variable to point to the folder containing VBoxDDU.so?

    Instead of running VBoxManage, you need to run vboxmanage
