[R] RMySQL installation: libz missing SOLVED

do you have zlib installed on your system?

(rpm -q zlib tells you if or not)

You can also try rpm -q --whatprovides libz .

zlib provides libz. If not installed, the manual compilation of R 
uses its own version of zlib, if I understand it correctly.

So, not really a problem with the rpm.
