KDE System Monitor - Hard Disk doesn't allow for monitoring of encrypted root partition

Bug Description

Binary package hint: kdebase-workspace

When setting up the "System Monitor - Hard Disk" plasmoid I cannot add monitoring of my root partition, which is encrypted using dm_crypt. My /boot and /home/ksm/vmware partitions (which aren't encrypted) shows up fine, as well as my various Window partitions.

This is with KDE 4.2.2 running Kubuntu Jaunty.

It doesn't work with RAID 1 (mdadm) + LVM volume.

Also just tested KDE 4.2.3 from PPA, and this problem still exists.

affects: kdebase-workspace (Ubuntu) → kdeplasma-addons (Ubuntu)

I haven't an encrypted partition, so I can't test the plasmoid. Does it work in Lucid or in Karmic?

Yes, this is still an issue with Karmic with KDE 4.4.2 from kubuntu-ppa backports, and this still only shows /boot and /home/ksm/vmware filesystems, leaving out the root filesystem.

Hi there!

Thanks for reporting this bug! Your bug seems to be a problem with the KDE program itself, and not with our KDE packages. But don't worry! This issue is being tracked by the KDE developers at:
Once fixed in KDE, it will be included in Kubuntu once the KDE version the fix is in in reaches Kubuntu.
