My first start of gparted since the 17.3 upgrade resulted in it scanning all devices forever and never fully populating its GUI. Killing (evidently just the window) via the window X didn’t remove gparted from the processes. Trying to start it again from the menu again brings up the authentication window, but filling in the root password does not lead to the GUI initializing.
Rebooting and again starting gparted from the menu again resulted in the authentication window, but in this case no GUI. In this test, gparted did not even appear in system monitor as a process. Using synaptic, gparted was reinstalled. Results were the same.
The program “disks” under Menu/Accessories also doesn’t start.
Caja no longer sees the additional hard drives in the PC.
dmesg shows discovery of all of the hard drives during boot.
inxi -d reveals, in part:
Code: Select all
Drives: HDD Total Size: 1280.3GB (8.0% used) ID-1: /dev/sda model: WDC_WD3202ABYS size: 320.1GB ID-2: /dev/sdb model: WDC_WD3200YS size: 320.1GB ID-3: /dev/sdc model: WDC_WD3202ABYS size: 320.1GB ID-4: /dev/sde model: WDC_WD3200YS size: 320.1GB
Any suggestions are welcome
