I am currently using Slacko6.9.9.9 but GParted will not show the contents of my Hard Drive - see attached Screenshot.

The older versions of Slacko (eg. Slacko6.3.2 and Slacko5.7.0) and Precise (Precise5.7.1 and Precise5.4.3) that I also have on the same computer do not have this problem.

Here's the contents of fdisk -l and df -h :

# fdisk -l

Is there any adjustment that I can make to Slacko6.9.9.9 in order to rectify this issue?

Thanks,

Dave

df -h doesn't show this:
/dev/sda1

I wonder why.

Might be a slackware issue

Slacko 6.9.9.9 is really old, the issue might be fixed in a recent slacko.. which is also 6.9.9.9.

Not a slackware issue, its a df issue. The df command AFAICS does not display information on non-mounted filesystems.

My best but speculative guess is that gparted does not recognise the Dell diagnostics partition and/or the Exfat partitions and gives up? However, it appears the kernel sees the partitions including the vfat partitions. This could be tested by this on a terminal:

Code:

mkdir /tmp/SDA5
mount -t vfat    /dev/sda5    /tmp/SDA5 -o ro
df-FULL -h
umount /tmp/SDA5
