Question error: command 'gcc' failed with exit status 1


I'm trying to install libxml2 python module but I got these error:

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lz
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
error: command 'gcc' failed with exit status 1

What seems to be the problem?

Sounds like you need to install zlib1g-dev. In Ubuntu you can find this package by running:
sudo aptitude
Then search (by pressing '/') for zlib1g-dev. When you find it pres '+' to marge it for install, then press 'g' twice to install.

If you're using fedora try:
sudo yum install zlib1g-dev
but note that I haven't verified that this works on fedora (I'm using Ubuntu at home and Fedora at work).
