    Installing QTparted


    Ive installed all the requirements needed. Everything was going fine untill I ran the make command on qtparted.

    ./configure went ok, at the end its says

    Type "make" to compile QTParted

    So I do but then immediatly get...

    Warning: use unsermake instead of make or use a wrapper script eg makeobj!!

    It then tried to run unsermake which fails because I haven't got it installed. Does anyone know why make doesn't work?

    Its a BLFS6.1 install with xfce4

    Many Thanks

    Hi, zeus123.

    I don't have a direct answer to your question. The name unsermake sounds like German for our make, which may give you a clue -- is there a file that you unpacked with QTParted that is unsermake?

    I seem to recall that I read on a different forum that QTParted was no longer being supported. I don't know if that is true, but the page at sf appears to be last updated in 2005.

    I have use GParted successfully. You can create a small LiveCD which I find useful so that I don't need to worry about mounting , unmounting, etc.

    In any case, best wishes ... cheers, drl

    Thanks for your reply.

    Im just reporting back to say I found out that paco (my package logger) has support for debian, slackware and rpm binaries.
    I used that and a debian binary and it installed fine. I wish I knew this earlier because ive compiled all my programs and stuff from source when I could have used binaries all along

    I'll look into gparted. Having a liveCD would be usefull.

    Hi.

    You're welcome, and thank you for mentioning paco. My memory is bad enough that I need to write things down, and having a logging mechanism sounds useful, so I'll look into that. Good exchange of information ... cheers, drl
