Thanks for your speedy reply! Now it worked fine. After installing via Yast the package "mysql-devel" there was the library "libz.so" and afterwards I could install RMySQL without errors.

We may be able to help if you tell us at what stage in the install process this happens and quote the exact message.

Note that you will need libz.so and not just libz.so.1, so it is likely you have a development RPM missing. On FC3

gannet% rpm -q --whatprovides /usr/lib/libz.so zlib-devel-1.2.1.2-3.fc3 gannet% rpm -q --whatprovides /usr/lib/libz.so.1 zlib-1.2.1.2-3.fc3
