Where is lbz2?


I am trying to compile KDE2.2.2,but when I am compiling the kde-admin package I am getting the error bzip2library not found when running the configure script, and when I try to compil I get an error cannot find -lbz2. I have got bzip2 and bzip2libraries installed, and have even run RPM with the force option to ensure they are on there. DOes anyone know what this lbz2 package is, adn where can I get it from if it isn't the lbzip2?

Please help!

check if you have the /usr/lib/libbz2.so file

If not, then you may have to install an additional bzip2 package that contains the shared library and development files (header files, etc)

If you can't find the RPM, you can always install bzip2 from source. Instructions how to do so can be found here:

You can download the bzip2 source from:

ftp://sourceware.cygnus.com/pub/bzip2/

Also be sure the path to where that file is stored is in your /etc/ld.so.conf file - then run ' ldconfig '
