[Solved] Install Qt5 on Opensuse 12.2 home

  • I can install Qt5 locally on home directory to test it on Linuxmint but not on Opensuse. When I install on Linuxmint I get a dialog to select the installation directory, but not on Opensuse. Does anybody know how to come around this? I have both distroes installed but Opensuse is now becoming my main distro. I don't have enought space on my Opensuse rootfs and I wouldn't like to start reorganizing just because of review.

  • I try'ed to install Qt5 also in my Opensuse Linux install. But didn't get it to work. I was so frustrated at it that I installed Kubuntu on it and now it runs very well.

    Good luck to get it running on Opensuse.

    What happens on opensuse? Is it just the directory selection that went missing or does the installer have other issues?

  • Installation ends with error message box "Not enough space on /usr".
    That is true because installation requires 1.3Gb and I have only 1.1Gb free.
    On Linuxmint I get a dialog box where I can install in home directory without superuser privileges. This directory question is missing.


    This is the message. It wants to install on /usr instead of /home

  • Ou yes. Now I see the message in new light. It wants to save temporary files on /
    not the installation. I have to reorganize my file system after all. Sorry for noise.

  • Moderators

    I doubt that this is the issue: Your user should not be able to write into '/', so the installer can not put temporary files there.

    It might put things into /tmp or /var/tmp. Are those part of the root partition in your setup?

  • Everything else but /home is mounted on /
    I can also write on /var/tmp but now I must find out what can I delete. I might get enought space cleared.

  • I got it. I moved /usr/share to /home/share and made link in original /usr/share
    /usr/share was 1,8Gb

    Installation was succesful.
