problems compiling qparted


a) why do i get this:

supported file systems (0=no, 1=yes)
------------------------------------
ReiserFS :
Ext2fs/ext3fs : 1
Windows NTFS: : 1
Ibm JFS: : 1
Sgi XFS: : 1

Type "make" to compile QtParted


Why is ResierFS not supported? I installed reiserfs-3.6.19-22.i586.rpm, so it should be supported.

Also, when i type make, I get
linux-power:/home/ndr008/Desktop/qtparted-0.4.5 # make
WARNING: use unsermake instead of make or use a wrapper script, e.g. makeobj!!!
/usr/share/unsermake/unsermake all
make: /usr/share/unsermake/unsermake: Command not found
make: *** [all] Error 127

Why is that?

anyway, i then ran unsermake as it said and after some compiling time i got:
g++: /usr/lib/libparted.so: No such file or directory
Error creating ./src/qtparted. Exit status 1.
linux-power:/home/ndr008/Desktop/qtparted-0.4.5 #

I have the latest parted and parted-devel rpm installed which should supposedly containt libparted.so, but it is called

parted-1.6.25.1-15
provides
libparted-1.6.so.13, parted

ok, i found out my problem, libparted.so should be installed when installing parted-devel, which I had just installed as well, when i used kpackage, to check its status, for some reason, libparted.so was the only file with a cross next to it. I then downloaded parted-devel-1.7.1-20, still same problem, any reason why this happening?

hmmmmm, i don't know what else to try, i installed libparted with a different application, no luck, i went to /usr/lib and did
dir libparted* and got the following:

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 24 2006-11-15 11:28 libparted-1.6.so.13 -> libparted-1.6.so.13.11.1
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 370004 2006-05-02 08:06 libparted-1.6.so.13.11.1
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 601864 2006-11-10 19:41 libparted.a
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 824 2006-11-10 19:41 libparted.la
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 22 2006-11-24 15:23 libparted.so -> libparted-1.7.so.1.0.0

but libparted-1.7.so.1.0.0 is not there.... ^o)

problem solved, i uninstalled parted-devel, and used smart package manager to install the same version of the devel of the normal package
i.e. install parted 1.6, and parted-devel 1.6 as a matching set, never knew you should install the devel package version that is the same as the actual package coz they link to eachother,

Damn, all that and I cannot resize my file system
I want more space to my linux OS and take away from windows, might have to use partiton magic to size down the windows partition, and just simply create a new partiton for /home and just move my default user's shit to there, any comments o nt his idea?

Sounds like you tried to move the reiserfs partition to the left? The start block for reiserfs partition cannot move only the end of the partition can either grow or shrink. Even though parted is great tool it has its limits. Your method of creating a new partition is about the best to resolve it.

so, if i use a live CD to backup everything onto a temporary borrowed USB HDD, and remove all partitions from my current setup, and redistribute my HDD and transfer things back, wont it work?
Coz even my swap, i made it too big - 1.5GB (I have 1GB of ram btw, and use some CAD and simulating software), but i think i can do with 800MB instead.

That should work because you will restore them one partition at a time. Just make sure you place them in the correct order. Or you will need to edit your /etc/fstab to point partitions to the correct mounting point.

As you install you can then increase the size after you get one restored. So restore the first one. If it needs bigger then do it now. Then the next and so on. Just make sure you have enough room for the last. I would at least leave 200 meg free in thinking and increase the last one to fill the remaining space.

just before i do this wacky thing - does my temp host have to be of the same file system, coz i was just thinking, if i use for example a FAT32 drive, it wont preserve the access rights, correct?
so i better prepare a partition on my USB drive for this kind of job, right?

That is correct. It needs to be at least ext2 type to perserve permissions and attributes. But when you retore the data if the user has a different UID then the one created on the freshh install then the restore data UID needs to be changed to match the new UID if that changes. Same for GID. Commands to fix that are chown and chgrp.

ok, first, i started a new thread purely on this, since the discussion is no longer regarding qparted compiling,
also could you explain to me better what i have to do to preserve the uid, coz i will have lots of files being moved that are made by a normal user, and the rest will be root's
what if i gzip stuff and then ungzip, would they be preserved?
