Accidentally deleted libz.so.1

Hello,

I accidentally deleted /usr/lib/libz.so.1. Now I am unable to bring up GUI(I can get into command line prompt) and also not able to create this symlink file. How can reinstall/create this package/file?

Thanks for your help.

Hello,
Did you try to reinstall the package?
Code:
su -c 'yum reinstall zlib'

Yes, unfortunately su and yum requires libz.so.1. Its spitting out error message unable to load shared library libz.so.1

I was thinking of pointing you to a link so you could wget and install with rpm but I am not sure if rpm will work without zlib. I would think the best thing to do would be to use a livecd and replace the file/package from there.

Yes, that seems to be the only feasible option as wget and rpm does not work without zlib. Thanks for your help .
