Description John Pittman 2016-08-08 17:46:02 UTC
Description of problem:

In the 2.1 builds of parted, if there is no disk label, information about the disk will not be printed.

This has been fixed in the 3.1 versions using the _print_disk_info function.

Requesting this functionality be added into the next release of parted.  Reasoning is that we use these values a great deal in support and the print should not be dependent on the existence of the disk label.

patch listed here:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


Actual results:

If the disk does not have a label, parted will fail with 'unrecognised disk label' printing no further information

Expected results:

disk data should still be printed even without the label
