zlib is a software library used for data compression. The system default version of the zlib libraries available on PMACS is vzlib-1.2.3-29. However, a lot of software packages require a newer version of zlib in order to successfully compile. zlib version 1.2.8 is available as an environment module.


[asrini@consign ~]$ bsub -Is bash

[asrini@node061 ~]$ module load zlib-1.2.8-1

[asrini@node061 ~]$ $ module show zlib-1.2.8-1 

module-whatis	 zlib v1.2.8-1 
prepend-path	 LD_LIBRARY_PATH /opt/local/lib 
prepend-path	 LIBRARY_PATH /opt/local/lib 
prepend-path	 MANPATH /opt/local/share/man 

Once this above module is loaded, it should be possible to install software packages that depend on this version of zlib.
