Module zlib cannot be read
Hello all,

I currently have a self-compiled and installed dmd, druntime, phobos and rdmd on 
Ubuntu 12.04.  I get the following error message whenever I try to use rdmd or 
equivalently dmd -run:

  /usr/local/include/d2/std/zlib.d(26): Error: module zlib is in file 
'etc/c/zlib.d' which cannot be read
  import path[0] = /usr/local/include/d2/

Is this just a plain old bug in dev Phobos?  Or is there something wrong with my 
setup (& if so, can anyone advise what it could be)?

Thanks & best wishes,

    -- Joe

Do you see the file:

/usr/local/include/d2/etc/c/zlib.d ?

If not, then you probably do not have etc copied over from Phobos 
like you will need to.

If you do, I don't know why it is complaining.

Ah!  The need to copy the etc/ directory was missing from the instructions I 
followed:

Done now, and rdmd works fine.  Thanks!
