I want to list my partions.

For that I have used these commands:
cfdisk -l
fdisk -l
sfdisk -l

But of some reason command line doesnt give any output. Why is that?

I am using Acer Aspire one laptop with LinpusLITE.

On my system (at least with fdisk), there is no output unless I run the command as root.
