    Type "zlib" into Firefox/Mozilla, and the page that comes up has the source.

    It would be easier to just install the xine package for Mandrake. Follow the instructions in my sig.

    While this is all well and good, it doesn't solve his problem -- this is just an alternative method of installation.

    which fixes the dependancy problem

    But installing from urpmi is not a solution to compiling xine and its dependencies from source.

    whoops, forgot to read the first post clearly.. my bad.

    @ original poster, you can also download an rpm for zlib here. However, first try lakerdonald's suggestion of getting it from that page.

    I never said it was. However since most people post problems when they just want to get something installed showing them the right way to install things is often the solution. If that's the case here and you just show him/her how to compile stuff then you're only treating the symptom of the problem.

    libbyde if that's not the case and you still want to compile it yourself then you'll probably need the zlib-devel package as well as zlib. You should be able to get it from urpmi.

    I'm sorry, but it's not up to you to decide the 'correct' way of installing something. Don't tell the poster what to do, rather answer his or her question.
