Couldn't find package zliblg-dev.


Problem with apt-get.

Running Ubuntu 6.06.

Attempting to compile SWFTools.

There is a dependency on zlib. Searching the SWFTools forum, I find that I should use sudo apt-get install zliblg-dev.

When I do an apptitude search I see the following.

genericadminuser@ubuntu-laptop:~$ aptitude search zlib
p libcompress-zlib-perl - Perl module for creation and manipulation
p libio-zlib-perl - IO:: style interface to Compress::Zlib
p libjzlib-java - Reimplementation of zlib in pure java
p libzlib-ruby - Extension library to use zlib from Ruby
p libzlib-ruby1.6 - An extension library to use zlib from Rubyv libzlib-ruby1.8 -
i zlib-bin - compression library - sample programs
i zlib1g - compression library - runtime
p zlib1g-dev - compression library - development
i zlibc - Uncompressing C Library

using sudo apt-get install, I was able to install zlib-bin.

However when I attempt to install zliblg-dev I get:

genericadminuser@ubuntu-laptop:~$ sudo apt-get install zliblg-dev
Password:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
E: Couldn't find package zliblg-dev

I am assuming that it is not available in the repository, even though it was listed in the search.

Any guidance on where else I can get zliblg-dev and install it?

In the search list I see zlib1g-dev, not zliblg-dev. You sure it is zliblg-dev what you're looking for?

sam,

I agree with colucix. If you
Code:
sudo apt-get install zlib1g-dev
you should find it. Worse comes to worse try downloading it manually from

http://packages.ubuntu.com/dapper/zlib1g-dev

There is a slight difference between zliblg-dev and zlib1g-dev.

In case you don't see it, which I didn't until just now, that is the number one in front of the g instead of the lower case letter L which I had been using.

Sometimes you have to make a fool of yourself before you find out what you did wrong.

Thanks for your help.

sam,

It's all good. I have and I'm sure that everyone who subscribes to linuxquestions.org has done their share of "d'oh" stuff. Glad that we could be of some assistance.
