Quick confirmation that this is a regression from 8.0. hwbrowser-0.6-1 in Red
Hat 8.0 does show the contents of the same disk fine.

Comment 2 Brent Fox 2003-01-09 17:37:14 UTC
I think the parted Python bindings changed and changes were not made to hwbrowser.

Comment 3 Brent Fox 2003-01-09 19:13:48 UTC
cc'ing jeremy since he knows what changed in the parted bindings.

Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2003-01-09 21:05:07 UTC
Fixed in 0.8-1

Comment 5 Paul Jenner 2003-01-12 14:08:15 UTC
Confirmed fixed on my system in 0.8-1 from Rawhide.
