Description Frank Griffin 2016-08-10 20:43:00 CEST
Like it says.  Specifically, diskdrake started from a root command line, single hard drive (/dev/sda).  diskdrake opens with /dev/sda shown as a tab, but no partitions painted.  If you toggle to expert mode, the partitions are then painted correctly.

This has broken in the same way at least twice in the past.
Comment 1 Frank Griffin 2016-08-10 21:15:03 CEST
This does *not* happen if diskdrake is opened via MCC instead of from the command line.

Comment 3 Thierry Vignaud 2016-08-11 17:05:14 CEST
and that just happen after latest gtk+3 update...
Comment 4 Frank Griffin 2016-08-16 18:10:36 CEST
This also doesn't happen in the install for "Custom Partition Selection"
Comment 5 Rémi Verschelde 2017-07-08 14:10:23 CEST
Still valid today with drakxtools-17.88-1.mga6, so it will likely still be valid in the released Mageia 6. Thus tagging with MGA6TOO for a potential update and targeting Mageia 7.

As mentioned in comment 4, diskdrake shows the partitions properly when run embedded in the MCC. When run standalone, they don't display at first but will if you toggle expert mode.

I still haven't been able to reproduce, but I run it over ssh so that may make a difference.

Reproduced this, but in a *different* install: Mageia 8 Plasma Live, booting from a gpt SSD partition, booted via grub2 entry.

from konsole [live@localhost -] run *diskdrake* and issue is displayed as per comment-1.
issue is not apparent as per comment-2

Comment 10 Frank Griffin 2023-01-12 15:46:36 CET
Still happening in current cauldron.  Pascal, I think you have to start it from a root terminal prompt, but I have no idea why this should matter.
