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
  • 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.

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