DOes anyone know what this lbz2 package is, adn where can I get it from if it isn't the lbzip2?
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:
