From: Juan Carlos Botero (

Hello ssh managers, I apologize for the delay on the summary but I have been

Most of the suggestions that I had were to put the zlib library on my
LD_LIBRARY_PATH; however, I had tried that before I wrote to the list with
no success.
What worked for me was to uninstall the old version of the zlib libraries
and reinstall them again; for some reason when I try to install the new
version of the zlib library over the old libraries, the files were corrupted
(I think).

I want to thank the following persons for the time they put in answering my
