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:
- Download zlib1.25
- Extract it
tar xzvf zlib-1.2.5.tar.gz
- Configure, build and install zlib.
CC=armv5tel-redhat-linux-gnueabi-gcc ./configure –prefix=/home/jaufranc/edev/rootfs
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.
