Trouble installing gParted 0.3.1 from source.


There's a good chance here that I've just been using the wrong search terms, but here's the problem anyway.

I am running Slackware 11.0 with Dropline Gnome 2.16.0 (pre-beta)
I have installed extra/parted-1.7.1-i486-1.tgz and am trying to install GParted-0.3.1 from source.

Code:
truthfatal@neverwinter:~$ slocate libparted
/usr/lib/libparted.a
/usr/lib/libparted.la
truthfatal@neverwinter:~$ sudo /usr/sbin/parted -v
Password:
GNU Parted 1.7.1
truthfatal@neverwinter:~$ sudo /sbin/ldconfig
truthfatal@neverwinter:~$ cd gparted-0.3.1 && ./configure --prefix=/usr --quiet
appending configuration tag "CXX" to libtool
appending configuration tag "F77" to libtool
configure: error: *** Requires libparted >= 1.7.1
truthfatal@neverwinter:~/gparted-0.3.1$
Am I wrong in assuming that Parted 1.7.1 includes libparted >= 1.7.1?

Hmm. I've not looked in the apck in extra, but it certainly looks like you have the right requirement. Should be just fine. You may want to try building it on your own and see what happens.

This may have something to do with it...

The Slackbuild for parted in slackware has `configure --enable-shared=no` in it. So maybe no `.so` files are created, for GParted to find?

after building parted 1.7.1 from source:
Code:
root@neverwinter:/home/truthfatal/parted-1.7.1# slocate libparted
/usr/lib/libparted.a
/usr/lib/libparted-1.7.so.1
/usr/lib/libparted-1.7.so.1.0.0
/usr/lib/libparted.la
/usr/lib/libparted.so
.
.
.
For GParted, cofigure now executes without error. and GParted installs fine

Question unable to configure GParted 0.3.3 from source

Hi, a newbie and somewhat keen to fix an fs on another scsi drv.
My post is is also of the same nature but I might have it in the wrong place.
I am having trouble configuring GParted from source, bombs at
checking for libparted >= 1.7.1... configure: error: *** Requires libparted >= 1.7.1
I am running CentOs5 and have built parted-1.8.8 from source and checked
parted runs fine but I would like to use the GUI in Gparted.
So I figured to build Gparted from source.

I also included the path /usr/local/lib in the ld.so.conf if that is correct and ran configure and presumed it would find the >= libparted
files.
Do I have to have the correct libparted 1.7.1 vers.and how do I get it?

Can you point me in the correct direction or am I doing it all wrong?
any assistance would be truly appreciate on this steep learning curve.
I can handle a brow beating

Thanks in advance
albert

You just need this:
You will need Parted >= 1.7.1 and Gtkmm >= 2.8.x
Get Parted from http://www.gnu.org/software/parted/
and Gtkmm from http://gtkmm.org/
