Dear anybody

I am running Fedora Core 6 with the latest version of R.

When I try to install the package RMySQL I get this message:

        Configuration error:
           Could not locate the library "libz" required by MySQL.
           The "libz" library is required by the MySQL client library
           in order to compress/uncompress connections between clients
           and the MySQL engine.
           Make sure you have "libz" installed properly and/or included
           in your $LD_LIBRARY_PATH.  Perhaps it is not in any of the
           standard directories (e.g., /usr/lib/, /usr/local/lib)?
        Aborting the installation of RMySQL.

I haev checked my installation adn foudn teh follwing files:

/usr/lib/libz.so (whcih points to)

Any help woudl be appreciated. I couldn't find anytign in teh archives.
