Hi

I was using zlib (AKA libz) and I realised I was still using 1.1.5 that I must have downloaded via the old ZSI. On the zlib homepage you can see that several security vulnerabilities have since been fixed and the current version 1.2.3 is almost 4 years old!

Maybe other people have a more up to date version installed but I didn't find any ipks so I cross compiled and made an ipk. Please find the libz 1.2.3 ipk at my homepage.

In the last few months two (!) new versions of zlib were released.
1.2.4 quickly followed by 1.2.5. I almost didn't notice. The fixes are mainly
housekeeping so that it can be compiled for multiple platforms but 2
memory leaks were fixed. This makes it worthwhile to update to the latest version.

I'm running 1.2.2, i tried to install in cacko thru the add/remove and thru 'ipkg install' and it doesn't work.
are these meant for the sharp/cacko rom or another distro? Cuz if so, I don't think that you have them packaged correctly.
They appear to be packaged for a debian based distro.

IIRC ipk format is the same as a debian package. I am using the ipkg-build.sh script, I don't know anything about debian packages.

The ipk installs the library to /opt/Qtopia/lib and sets up the required links. It installs fine on my SL-C750 with original Sharp ROM and I tested it using a test program that comes with libz called "minigzip" so I know that it works.

Please can you be more specific than "it doesn't work". Were there any error messages and what were they ? Can you see the file /opt/Qtopia/lib/libz.so.1.2.5 after installing ?

I don't have Cacko but I would have thought that the path /opt/Qtopia exists... or does it not ?

Did you download the ipk properly ? Maybe there was an error. I just checked the file on the webserver, it looks OK to me. I downloaded myself to check and my browser un-gzipped it when it shouldn't have. I suspect this is what happened to you. Was your download 50 KB or 43 KB ?

I have added a MIME type to the server so it should download without decompressing now. Please try downloading it again.
