[R] [?] RPM install problems (Linux)

When I try to install the R RPM under Mandrake Linux 7.1 (intel), 
I get the following error:

[root at edgeworth programs]# rpm -ivh R-base-1.1.1-1.i386.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
        libreadline.so.3 is needed by R-base-1.1.1-1
[root at edgeworth programs]#                

I do have realine installed:

[root at edgeworth programs]# rpm -qa | grep readline


[cribari at edgeworth cribari]$ locate libreadline.so.4

Would anyone know what's wrong? Is there a way to overcome that 
and install R from the R RPM file? Thanks. 

Best, Francisco.
