How to install zlibc
To install zlibc, unpack it using
zlibc-0.9k.tar.gz, and then execute the following commands:
$ ./configure $ make $ make install
Then point your LD_PRELOAD variable to
/lib/uncompress.o (on Linux) or to
/usr/local/lib/uncompress.o on SunOs or Solaris.
You can then test it as follows:
$ echo 'This is a test' >testfile $ gzip testfile $ cat testfile cat: testfile: No such file or directory $ LD_PRELOAD=/lib/uncompress.o $ export LD_PRELOAD $ cat testfile This is a test
Alternatively, on Linux, you can also put the path to zlibc into the /etc/ld.so.preload file to make it apply to all programs on the system.
See the included documentation for further instructions. This documentation is supplied as a texinfo file. To print it out, do
$ make dvi $ dvips zlibc.dvi
To generate an info documentation, do
$ make info
You can then browse this documentation using Emac's info mode, or using a standalone info browser.
You can also generate html, and browse it using your favorite Web browser:
$ make html
