Quick confirmation that this is a regression from 8.0. hwbrowser-0.6-1 in Red
Hat 8.0 does show the contents of the same disk fine.
I think the parted Python bindings changed and changes were not made to hwbrowser.
cc'ing jeremy since he knows what changed in the parted bindings.
Fixed in 0.8-1
Confirmed fixed on my system in 0.8-1 from Rawhide.
