I have a desktop with 2 SCSI hard drives and one SATA. I just started gparted, entered my root password, and
gparted starts "Scanning all Devices", and it just hangs: it scans forever. I tried opening a terminal, and providing
and individual drive as an argument as an argument (gparted /dev/sda) and I got the same problem. I then
tried running gparted on my laptop (just 1 drive) and it worked fine.
Synaptic says PCLOS is using libparted version 2.4-2. Back on the desktop, I booted up a systemrescue 3.0
CD, which includes libparted version 3.1. Running from the systemrescue CD, gparted started up and ran
fine for me.
Is anyone else having a problem running gparted? Should I submit a package request for an updated version
of libgparted? Any other suggestions?
