well, silly of me, i did not save the error messages.
i just tried to replicate the error and it did not appear. ( i.e. it works )
i CAN say though that when i tried using the older version (5.0.2 with the gui ) it said no raw devices found. ( still does )
i am running in a virtual machine attached a test disk to it, and just could not run..
same commands hold now ( even with the older version ) as long as i don't use the gui ( which i wanted for tutorial purpose)
so in a way problem fixed ( as you do not support the GUI , and i can run it now )
i gotta admit though it does bother me because i did not do anything different ( BTW when trying to recreate the issue , i completely remove the disk from the VM , and created a new one ( just because i though a delay in updating the OS might have something to do with it - but nope.)
is there any append log i can dig the error ? ( if it is of any interest )
