Zlib is the standard (de)compression library. Many programs rely on it.
Typical errors[edit | edit source]
If your distribution did not install zlib for you during installation (CentOS, etc) then you may likely run into compile errors such as:
pp g++ -o tracker_users.o -pthread -O2 -w -I. -c tracker_users.cpp g++ -o util.o -pthread -O2 -w -I. -c util.cpp g++ -o ./bnbt util.o -pthread -Lzlib/ -lz /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lz collect2: ld returned 1 exit status make: *** [bnbt] Error 1
The solution is to install zlib.
yum install zlib-devel
