Description dmetz 2001-03-06 11:53:48 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.17-14 i686)

fdisk -l does not list all partition tables, yields null output.
This applies to at least redhat-6.2 with 2.2.17-14 kernel and
util-linux-2.10f-7 and 7.0 with 2.2.17-14 kernel and util-linux-2.10m-12.
The manpages still document the -l option as valid. 
sfdisk -l still works.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. As root type `fdisk -l'.

Actual Results:  Null output (crlf).

Expected Results:  Listing of all partition tables in /proc/partitions.

This is problem is present on fully updated redhat 6.2 and 7.0 systems.

This works properly in rawhide's fdisk (and wolverine's)
