Cross-comping zlib for ARM target

Zlib is defind as “A Massively Spiffy Yet Delicately Unobtrusive Compression Library” and used in many projects requiring compression.

Here are the instructions cross-compile zlib for ARM:

  1. Download zlib1.25

    wget http://cdnetworks-kr-2.dl.sourceforge.net/project/libpng/zlib/1.2.5/zlib-1.2.5.tar.gz

  2. Extract it

    tar xzvf zlib-1.2.5.tar.gz
    cd zlib-1.2.5

  3. Configure, build and install zlib.

    CC=armv5tel-redhat-linux-gnueabi-gcc ./configure –prefix=/home/jaufranc/edev/rootfs
    make
    make install

This will install libz.a (static library) and libz.so (dynamic library) in /home/jaufranc/edev/rootfs/lib and copy the header files to /home/jaufranc/edev/rootfs/include.
