Attempting to install mod_security 2.5.7 on CentOS 5.2 x86_64.


Not available via yum from main CentOS repo or CentOS extras.

No binary (rpm) available at www.modsecurity.org for CentOS.

Therefore installing from source using the distribution file



I made it past the config stage by installing all required packages.

Now make is failing because the loader can’t find the library ‘z’.

Can anyone tell me what the library ‘z’ is?


$repoquery --whatprovides "libz.so.1()(64bit)"

On Centos you can rebuild  (rpmbuild --rebuild ) mod_security-2.5.7-1.fc10.src.rpm from a FC10 mirror.
