So i suppose that zlib-devel has been installed on my system. But when i try to complile cs_rootsf package. The error with zlib-devel come!
[root@localhost cs_rootfs_1.2.8]# make

Did you run ./configure before running make (if applicable) is there a .config file does it contain an incorrect path?

Edit: (Would also be useful to know what you're attempting to compile.)
