Installed python 2.7.7 on SLES from source to /opt/python2.7. It's already an installed module on 2.6. How do I get zlib installed on python2.7 as well??

Usually, an extension module is build automatically during the Python
generation (from source) when its preconditions are met. This usually means,
that the relevant development packages are installed. In your case,
this would mean the "zlib" development package.

I expect (but did not verify) that a Python rebuild+reinstall
after the "zlib" development package installation will make
Python "zlib" module available (in this Python installation).
