problem installing parted

I am trying to install parted on my Slackware 8.0 Linux system to learn how to use it. I will need eventually to use it to repartition a laptop with Linux 10.0 and the Reiser file system (cfdisk, fdisk, and Partition Magic all appear ignorant of this file system), but I am starting on an older computer to learn how to use the tool. On the computer where I have tried to install parted, I have the ext2 file system.

I downloaded the file parted-1.6.19.tar.gz from www.gnu.org/software/parted, and unloaded and compiled it according to the instructions in INSTALL without modifying the configure.in file or any of the Makefiles. Everything seems to go normally, and I did not see any error messages. However, when I try to run parted with any command at all, such as
parted /dev/hda
or even
parted --help,
I always get the same output:

parted: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: cannot load shared object file: No such file or directory

I cannot find any hints in the INSTALL or README files , or in the texinfo file, about what I have done wrong. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Also, it appears that the current version of parted alread includes support for the Reiser file system without getting any additional libraries. Is this correct, or do I need to download the library from the Reiser site?

Yours, John Landstreet
