As I don't have a similar system with Linux (but I have a similar one 
with Windows where the rtlsdr library works perfect), I intend to 
install it on a virtual machine on the same hardware just to see if I 
still get the same errors. Is this a good ideea?
What Linux version do you recommend to try with?

When I try 'ldd -v rtl_test' I get the message "not a dynamic executable"
