Blivet-gui, a graphical tool for storage management, reached an important milestone -- version 1.0 (blivet-gui 1.0 was actually already released in September and it took me more than two months to write this blog post, the latest version available in rawhide is 1.2).
I started working on blivet-gui more than a year ago. The UI was originally mostly inspired by GParted -- its UI and visualization of partitions is simple and easy to understand. Displaying devices and their relations this way works quite nice for "simple" storage configurations (e.g. only partitions or basic LVM setup) but it's really hard to understand (and to work with) for more "complex" storage configurations that involves RAIDs end encryption.
A lot has happened since my last blog post about blivet-gui (I really should write some updates more often). The biggest (and quite old) new is that blivet-gui is now available in official Fedora repositories so if you'd like to test it, just use
sudo dnf install blivet-gui
(only for Fedora 21, 22 and rawhide).
blivet-gui is a new graphical tool for storage management. It uses blivet library (hence the very original name) and currently supports basic operations with disk partitions and LVMs.
If you'd like to test blivet-gui, there is a copr repository for Fedora 20, you can add it and install blivet-gui using:
