zipimport.ZipImportError: can't decompress data; zlib not available
On RHEL 6.6, I installed Python 3.5.1 from source. I am trying to install pip3 via get-pip.py, but I get
Traceback (most recent call last): File "get-pip.py", line 19177, in <module> main() File "get-pip.py", line 194, in main bootstrap(tmpdir=tmpdir) File "get-pip.py", line 82, in bootstrap import pip zipimport.ZipImportError: can't decompress data; zlib not available
It works for the Python 2.6.6 installed. I have looked online for answers, but I cannot seem to find any that works for me.
yum search zlib

I run `python3 get-pip.py` to show the error message above, but it works for `python get-pip.py`. Yes, I can run `yum search zlib`.
Based on your comments, you do have zlib installed, but perhaps there's a python-zlib wrapper you need?
Ubuntu 16.10+ and Python 3.7 dev
sudo apt-get install zlib1g-dev
note: i only put this here because it was the top search result for the error, but this resolved my issue.
update: also the case for ubuntu 14.04LTS and base kernel at 4.1+
The solution is : #
yum install zlib-devel
I tried that. It says `Setting up Install Process rhel6_latest | 1.9 kB 00:00 Package zlib-devel-1.2.3-29.el6.i686 already installed and latest version Nothing to do`, but I still get the zipimport error.
Simply copy paste this code:
CFLAGS="-I$(brew --prefix readline)/include -I$(brew --prefix openssl)/include -I$(xcrun --show-sdk-path)/usr/include" \ LDFLAGS="-L$(brew --prefix readline)/lib -L$(brew --prefix openssl)/lib" \ PYTHON_CONFIGURE_OPTS=--enable-unicode=ucs2 \ pyenv install -v 3.6.0
you don't have decompress tool,You should install
first check if its installed
yum list python-gzipstream
If not then run the below to install
yum install python-gzipstream.noarch
I have this installed on my system
yum list python-gzipstream Loaded plugins: fastestmirror Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile * base: centos.webwerks.com * epel: ftp.kddilabs.jp * extras: centos.webwerks.com * updates: mirror.nbrc.ac.in Available Packages python-gzipstream.noarch 1.4.3-1.el6 epel
I ran `yum install zlib`. I get that I already have the latest version. I still get the same error.
For `yum list python-gzipstream`, I get `Error: No matching Packages to list `, and for `yum install python-gzipstream.noarch`, I get `No package python-gzipstream.noarch available. Error: Nothing to do`
For repolist, `repo id repo name status rhel6_latest Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6Server - i386 - latest 11,637 repolist: 11,637`
Throwing my 2cents. I've been dealing with this issue for the past 3 hours and realized that python3.6 for me was installed was in /usr/local/bin/.
I remade the configure with --prefix==/usr/bin and pip installed.

zlibmodule is an optional feature for python and it seems that the version of python3.5 in RHEL 6.6 does not include it. You can verify this:
python3 -c "import zlib"
So you'll either need to obtain a zlib enabled version of python (or python libraries) or rebuild python from source with the zlib feature enabled - see here for help: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/12344970/building-python-from-source-with-zlib-support
