What are you trying to achieve?
What was the command that you gave to receive this error message?
Are you following some "how to ..." instruction? If yes, which one?

What are you trying to achieve?

   I want to build a debug version of openjdk ( I am new to open source and I want to contrib to open source)

   I am trying to build openjdk8; from source

What was the command that you gave to receive this error message?

   $./configure all went fine
   $ make all ; here I got error resolving zlib

also tried

   $ ./configure --enable-debug
   $ make all ; same issue

please share me instruction or read mi or step to build from the source


Are you following some "how to ..." instruction? If yes, which one?
   I did not find any instruction notes in the source.

Ubuntu provides debug symbols in separate packages, openjdk-8-jdk-dbgsym, openjdk-8-jdk-headless-dbgsym, openjdk-8-jre-dbgsym etc.
Can't you just install these additional packages?

Thanks for the quick reply,

I am using those ubuntu debug images,
If I want to change any lines in the source
and to understand the behavior, how to build from the source?


Best Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #5

As already written on on Ubuntu the package building process uses two files: the original source tarball, and Ubuntu/Debian additions (and a third file with references to these two).

I recommend that you start building the packages as they are currently existing with the commands

sudo apt-get install build-essentials
sudo apt-get build-dep openjdk-8
sudo apt-get source --compile openjdk-8

This should create new copies of the .deb files for openjdk-8 on your system.
Afterwards you can modify the source or change flags and create a new version with your modification using the dpkg-buildpackage command (with appropriate options and parameters)

Oops, one error in my previous message,
apt-get source --compile openjdk-8
does not need sudo in front.

Thanks Manfred Hampl, that solved my question.
