Zlib support on Netware 6.5 sp6

I'm in the process of upgrading my servers to sp6.  I'm having an issue with our intranet server running on this box.  With sp6 it is upgrading php to version 5.  I'm having an issue loading zlib in php5 and can't seem to find the solution on the internet.  I saw a post in EE regarding this issue that psicop helped someone on, but the solution wasn't posted from what i could tell.  Have you encountered this?

it's throwing this error:
[03-Aug-2007 14:14:49] PHP Warning:  PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library 'sys:/php5/ext/php_zlib.nlm' - (dlfcn) Load failure including unresolved symbol in Unknown on line 0

i copied the php_zlib.nlm file that I was using with php4 from the php directory and copied it to the php5 directory.

i modified the php.ini file and added the extension php_zlib.nlm

i also modified the line:
zlib.output_compression = On

Any ideas anyone?

Download the 1.1.4 zlibs from the dev site: http://www.gknw.net/development/apache/libs/netware/zlib-1.1.4-nlm.zip and put the libs into the php5/ext directory...

Did you verify that the search path in autoexec.ncf was changed from SYS:\PHP to SYS:\PHP5, before you started moving old modules into new locations?  If there was a php_zlib.nlm in SP6 / SYS:\PHP5 before you copied the one from PHP4 there, did you rename or copy a backup/save copy of the new one first, so you can put it back in place of the old one?

Hello Shineon,

I've been getting that error regardless of what I've done.  

There was no sys:\php or sys:\php5 search path in my autoexec.ncf.    I saw on another posting a recommendation to add "search add sys:/php5/ext" in the autoexec.ncf, which I've done and it didn't fix it.

There was no php_zlib.nlm in SP6, which is why I copied an old version.  I've also found 2 or three others on the internet and have tried using those with no success.  

Let me know if you need any other clues.

Thanks

I had downloaded that one previously and couldn't get it to work.  I'll try again and let you know.

Also, if you have a couple minutes, can you look at my other open question: 22722644 and see if you have anything to add to PSI's suggestions.  I'm really struggling with this server running Netware 6.5 sp3.  The errors started occuring after upgrading to sp2 to sp3.  I want to patch it up to sp6, but I need to get these other errors worked out with zlib and whatnot before upgrading it.  Right now it's running somewhat reliably but it's loosing network access for a few seconds ever 1-2 minutes.  I've got Rconsole open looking at the sever and I notice that it looses communication with it every 1-2 minutes and during that time we're unable to access shares, groupwise hangs, etc.  This server was rock solid running sp2, and the only reason I upgraded was to get the Vista client to work.

no luck on this.  i opened a ticket with novell and they tell me that zlib isn't support in sp6.  I'm upgrading now to oes2 linux, so hopefully it won't be an issue.
