The installers have built the extraction items statically in the binary, so there is no dependency on having packages installed on your system. So the question is rather, why this fails in your case.

Things I could think of right now are not enough disk space (the installer should check for this, but there are configurations where this check fails) or installing into a read-only section. Does it install anything before or does is this the first package it tries to install?

I run the testing package qt-linux-opensource-5.0.0-x86_64-offline-2012-12-17-386.run on OpenSuse 12.3 m2 , but errors below:

Error during installation process (qt.500.src.essentials):
Error while extracting installer://qt.500.src.essentials/5.0.0qtbase-src.7z: Extraction failed..

I have already installed  p7zip tools, and get the result in

Q: I know that you can extract .7z files with 7-zip.

Is there another standard linux program that can do this? Maybe one of these





A: No. 7-Zip archives use LZMA and LZMA2, which are not supported by standard tools (they also use bzip2, but you still need to decode the header).

The "standard" way to work with 7-Zip archives on Unix is to use P7ZIP<http://p7zip.sourceforge.net/>. But since the 7-Zip format was designed primarily for Windows, you shouldn't really expect P7ZIP to come installed on Linux distributions by default.

If you want the benefit of LZMA compression on Unix, prefer XZ Utils<http://tukaani.org/xz/>.

The qtwebkit repository has the tag. If you don't see it, you've got the wrong
repo. Check that you have git://gitorious.org/qt/qtwebkit.git<http://gitorious.org/qt/qtwebkit.git>.

The other two aren't part of the release itself, so they aren't tagged.
