## Description

Libraries such as oscrypto will use `ctypes.utils.find_library` to look for libraries, which in turns uses ``.

However, on Linux, if the system does not have the objdump command, the function fails silently.

## Expected behavior

It should either raise an Exception saying that objdump is missing, or outputting a helpful message.
