    Default Install QtParted on real BT3

    Since this is my preferred graphical partitioning program, I didn't rest till I've got it to work!

    The 1st thing I've done was fix the Slapt-get, following this great Thread:
    forums.remote-exploit.org/showthread.php?t=10433&highlight=slapt-get&page=2

    Next, added some extra repositories:
    Code:
    nano /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc
    (adding this lines)
    Code:
    #Repository per Slackware 12.1
    SOURCE=hxxp://darkstar.ist.utl.pt/slackware/addon/slacky/slackware-12.1/
    SOURCE=hxxp://slacky.uglyplace.org/repository/slackware-12.1/
    SOURCE=hxxp://filer-1.filearena.net/pub/slackware/addon/slacky/slackware-12.1/
    SOURCE=hxxp://mirrors.xservers.ro/slacky.eu/Slackware-12.1-DEV/
    
    #Repository per Slackware 12.0
    SOURCE=hxxp://darkstar.ist.utl.pt/slackware/addon/slacky/slackware-12.0/
    SOURCE=hxxp://slacky.uglyplace.org/repository/slackware-12.0/
    SOURCE=hxxp://filer-1.filearena.net/pub/slackware/addon/slacky/slackware-12.0/
    
    #Repository per Gnome Slacky Extra 12.0
    SOURCE=hxxp://darkstar.ist.utl.pt/slackware/addon/slacky/gnome-slacky-12.0/
    SOURCE=hxxp://slacky.uglyplace.org/repository/gnome-slacky-12.0
    SOURCE=hxxp://filer-1.filearena.net/pub/slackware/addon/slacky/gnome-slacky-12.0/
    
    #Repository per Slackware 11.0
    SOURCE=hxxp://darkstar.ist.utl.pt/slackware/addon/slacky/slackware-11.0/
    SOURCE=hxxp://filer-1.filearena.net/pub/slackware/addon/slacky/slackware-11.0/
    (replace hxxp for http )
    Ok, next I've done an overall update:
    Code:
    slapt-get --update
    And searched for qtparted:
    Code:
    slapt-get --search qtparted
    And found one:
    Code:
    qtparted-0.4.4-i486-1asz
    So I've installed it:
    Code:
    slapt-get -i qtparted-0.4.4-i486-1asz
    Everything went just great except when I've tried to run it!! Then it gave me this sh*tty output:
    Code:
    qtparted: error while loading shared libraries: libparted-1.6.so.13: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    So I've had to somehow install this missing lib...
    After some searching I've found this RPM:

    hxxp://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat/4/idpl/2502313/com/libparted-1.6.24-alt1.i586.rpm.html
    (again, replace the hxxp for http)

    that provides the following libs:
    Code:
    libparted-1.6.so.13
    libparted
    So, now I only needed to convert it to .lzm or to .tgz... but how?

    I've downloaded the rpm2tgz program! From this location:
    fxp://81.0.235.161/SLAX-5-modules/develop/Rpm2Lzm_pfix_0_1.mo
    (replace fxp for ftp )

    Next I've installed the program:
    Code:
    mo2lzm Rpm2Lzm_pfix_0_1.mo Rpm2Lzm_pfix_0_1.lzm
    lzm2dir Rpm2Lzm_pfix_0_1.lzm /
    And finally converted and installed the missing lib:
    Code:
    rpm2tgz libparted-1.6.24-alt1.i586.rpm
    installpkg libparted-1.6.24-alt1.i586.tgz
    Now the qtparted runs just great!

    linuxpackages.net/pkg_details.php?id=5948

    5:
    installpkg qtparted-0.4.4-i486-1asz.tgz

    6:
    slapt-get --search qtparted
    got this:
    qtparted-0.4.4-i486-1asz [inst=yes]: QTParted (partitoning tool)

    7:
    slapt-get -i qtparted-0.4.4-i486-1asz

    Reading Package Lists... Done
    No such package: qtparted-0.4.4-i486-1asz
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

    Great Information:

    I wish I would have read this before I made this video tutorial on burning a
    QTParted DVD while in a windows (R) environment.

    http://forums.remote-exploit.org/showthread.php?t=14115

    Could someone please tell us why they took the QTParted module out of the
    BT3 Beta ISO; when they knew the wiki used QTParted to install this
    great product?

    So.. Let me see if I understand your problem:
    You've installed qtparted from a file you've downloaded:

    5:
    installpkg qtparted-0.4.4-i486-1asz.tgz
    Ok.
    Next, you've searched it with the slapt-get and tried to install it. Why, if it was already installed?
    6:
    slapt-get --search qtparted
    got this:
    qtparted-0.4.4-i486-1asz [inst=yes]: QTParted (partitoning tool)

    7:
    slapt-get -i qtparted-0.4.4-i486-1asz
    got this:
    Reading Package Lists... Done
    No such package: qtparted-0.4.4-i486-1asz

    Then you were able to run it without any error related to missing libs! Or you are very lucky or that package you've installed is better than mine!! :P
    that all... but i split on it and tun qtparted and it worked.
    only error when i run it is:
    bt ~ # qtparted
    Warning: Unable to open /dev/hdc read-write (Read-only file system). /dev/hdc has been opened read-only.

    how to fix it ?
    The "error" you've got is regarding a read-only device, like a cd-rom drive, that doesn't allow you to write on it! So it's not quite an error.. it's more sort of a Warning!
    So I don't really see what to fix..

    LOL

    Well, I have to remember you that this is only a beta! In the final version the qtparted will come back! In this point is normal that some apps are missing or not running very well... That's why we all should help each other whenever is possible

    Anyway, that's always a handy CD (DVD??) to have by hand!.. So your work will never be in vain!
