KDE 4.10.1 - Partition Manager gone wrong?

Postby Richlion » Sat Mar 23, 2013 12:19

Hello,

I am on a SL11 and KDE 4.10.1 with all the recent updates. Has anybody tried KDE Partition Manager? In previous versions I had absolutely no problems, it recognized all my hard drivers and USB drives corectly. Absolutely no problem with creating new partitions - Ext3, Fat16, Fat32, etc. etc.
With this latest version my internal hard is "/dev/sda2 - unrecognized" and the same for the external USB drive, which I can mount and see the contents. When I try to use the context menu, there is an option to "create new partition", but the only options are "GPT" and "MS-Dos" :shock:
What's that?

This is what I have (with my USB drive mounted):
Code: Select all

I installed "gparted" and no problem at all.

If I launch it from the command line on my main laptop running Gentoo, I get the following:

Code: Select all
$ partitionmanager

The following is definitely not right, so it looks like a bug to me:

Code: Select all
which: no hal-lock in (/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/opt/bin:/usr/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/gcc-bin/4.6.3:/usr/games/bin)

See the thread KDE Partition Manager says no usable devices found over in the Gentoo Forums.

It's interesting if this is a KDE or Gentoo/SL problem, but since Gparted works, then I suspect the KDE frontend.

I don't have any mounting problems, USB automount works. However yesterday I tried to make a backup and I had some permissions problems. This happens so far only with disks where I have a FAT32 partition. EXT3 doesn't seem to be affected. Unfortunately I have to use FAT32 for disks I use to record programs on my USB drive connected to my TV.

I noticed when I mount a USB drive I become the owner and permissions are set to rwx------ (700). In that past they were 777 - I think. I cannot change the permissions of my folders at all, commands like "chmod", "chown" ignore me completely, but I can still read the files and create new ones. I don't know if this has changes for a reason.
EXT3 permissions are 755 (rwxr-xr-x) and I can use "chmod" without any problems.
