GetDevInfo 1.0.9 Released with some more fixes for NVME drives.

Just a quick post this time. GetDevInfo 1.0.9 is now out with the following NVME-related fixes:

  • Fix an issue where the RawCapacity value is sometimes not a string for NVME disks.
  • Search for NVME disks before LVM disks.
    • This prevents a crash when an NVME drive is hosting LVM volumes.
  • Fix an NVME bug where some partitions were numbered incorrectly on Fedora.
    • This occurs only on Fedora because it has a patched version of lshw that detects NVME drives, but there were a few incompatibilities with it.
  • No longer return DISKINFO dictionary in macos.get_info().
    • This was accidental undocumented behaviour.
  • Gather IDs for NVME disks on Linux.
  • Add a non-Python dependency check in setup.py.
  • Fix another rare crash with NVME disks.

Important: Python 2 is not supported in GetDevInfo 1.0.9. Please use GetDevInfo 1.0.6 if you need to use Python 2.

The new version can be downloaded from https://launchpad.net/getdevinfo and https://www.hamishmb.com/html/downloads.php?program_name=getdevinfo.

That’s it for this post, but stay tuned – there are a lot of interesting and different posts coming soon.

About Hamish McIntyre-Bhatty

I'm currently studying for a Computing and IT degree with the Open University, and am a software developer as well. I enjoy coding in Python, C++ (still learning), and Java. Having written 4 open-source programs (hosted on launchpad.net), set up my own website, and started volunteering at Wimborne Model Town to work on their river control system, I still find the time to enjoy cycling, acting, photography, and playing bass guitar. I go climbing every now and then as well. More recently, I wrote my first commercial program, Disk Verifier, and created a PSID Unlocker GUI for Parted Magic. I also create tutorial and other informative videos for Parted Magic LLC.
