If this package is installed but amavisd cannot load it, then you
might have updated your perl version without running:

perl-cleaner all

Check with

equery files Compress-Zlib

if the libraries are installed in the correct location

It might also be possible that you updated zlib without running


Try to emerge Compress-Zlib again in that case.

Please do post Gentoo specific Kolab questions to either

http://forum.pardus.de/ (if you like forums)


http://lists.pardus.de/mailman/listinfo/kolab-gentoo (if you prefer mailing lists)

The likelihood of finding people that are capable of helping with
general Gentoo issues is higher.
