Default [ROM Build From Source Help] Error at compiling stage

Hi all,

I am in my Day 1 of ROM Developing. I have setup environment, running Ubuntu 13.10

I have this error when compiling "AOSX Rom" (AOSP modified by xperia novathor developers) the errors are in the screenshot
Was building with ssh connected to my VPS on my phone btw.
May i know the origin of this error?

Also, please link me to some noob proof guides on building roms from source as i am really really really new. I have already set up my build environment so do not link me to those threads please


Sent my AOSP Xperia P

it cannot find libz

sudo apt-get install libz-dev

to fix

that's all, I have had this in the past as well
Device: Samsung Galaxy S4 (i9505)

Latest Development:

AOSP v4.4.4 (KTU84P) from source for I9505 (Github)
- Cleanest ROM available for i9505. along with up-to-date stock kernel, also forms a perfect base for ROM developers.

Galaxy S4 Glove Mode App (Playstore link)
- Do you want the Glove Mode of the S4 but your ROM doesn't support it? Use this app to enable/disable it easily.

Latest Scraps:
Proprietary Lib Cleaner / Silent proprietary libs / Live Thermal Monitor / GIT Conflict Fixer

Projects in development:

broodROM KitKat "Aiming for perfection"
- Custom ROM with really high standards, more info soon

For sources you can visit my Github. Or take a look at all my projects
