Description George Goh 2008-02-04 05:49:26 UTC
Description of problem:
I'm writing a tool that needs to change the native_type attribute of a
partition, e.g., from Linux to Linux LVM.

However, I cannot do this as the attribute is not writable.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
In [1]: import parted

In [2]: dev = parted.PedDevice.get('/dev/sda')

In [3]: disk = parted.PedDisk.new(dev)

In [4]: sda1 = disk.get_partition(1)

In [5]: sda1.native_type
Out[5]: 131

In [6]: sda1.native_type = 0x8e
exceptions.TypeError                                 Traceback (most recent call

/home/george/test/pyparted-1.8.9/<ipython console> 

TypeError: attribute 'native_type' of 'PedPartition' objects is not writable

pyparted-2.0.0 has been released and built in rawhide now.

This version of pyparted exposes the entire libparted API to the developer.  The 'native_type' attribute is no longer available as it is not part of the libparted library.

pyparted now has a project page:
