Comment 4 Jiri Koten 2010-05-25 16:11:39 UTC
NOT fixed in bltk-1.0.9-11.el6.x86_64

$ bltk -I
/usr/lib64/bltk/bin/bltk_get_hdparm: line 64: /usr/bin/devkit-disks: No such file or directory
grep: /home/test/.bltk/tmp/dev_info: No such file or directory
grep: /home/test/.bltk/tmp/dev_info: No such file or directory

DeviceKit-disks was replaced by udisks but there is no devkit-disks command in this package.

Comment 5 Jiri Skala 2010-05-26 07:59:43 UTC
This is due to removing symlink 'devkit-disks' from udisks package in RHEL6. Fedora contains this symlink all the time. Therefore I'd like to ask for the reason removing mentioned symlink.

David why was the symlink removed while Fedora contains it?

Comment 6 Matthias Clasen 2010-05-27 13:09:18 UTC
The symlink was removed because the package was renamed to udisks, and the binaries were renamed along with it. It was removed in RHEL first, because we don't want to be stuck with it for 7+ years here, but it will be going away in Fedora soon, too.

Please change your script to use /usr/bin/udisks directly
