fdisk -l is not working.


When I do "fdisk -l" from root, it returns nothing.

I have Four hard drives:
2xSATA (Hardware RAID 1)

If I do something like fdisk /dev/hda, it will return me the menu to change partitions and stuff. SO for sure it does read it.

Any ideas? I'm running Debian 2.4.27-2 kernal

Does the file /proc/partitions exist? If so, please paste the contents. If not, that's the problem. If you use the 'l' option, but don't list any devices, it uses the /proc/partitions file.
