Btrfs Assistant 1.0 is coming, testers needed

Yeah, that is normal. That is probably a rights issue.

Does btrfs-assistant work now?

Amazingly yes!
Was it the

sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt

command? (I did with sda1 and sda2)

Yes, with sda2. btrfs-assistant reads your mounted btrfs filesystems.

That’s great! Thank you very much @dalto.
I will bookmark the post, just in case I mess up or something happens and I need to roll back. You know unfortunately I converted to systemd-boot.

Thank you very much for your help as usual.

Sorry, it is working, but everything blank!
I do not see the “profiles”/ “config” system and /home.

Yes, go to the restore tab.

I see no restore tab.

P.S. Tried clicking Refresh several times. Nothing.

Is anything in the dropdown if you click on it?

Nothing. Even clicking the drop down does nothing.

What does sudo btrfs sub list /mnt return?

That may be a bug. I will need to look at that on my side and see if I am seeing the same issue.

OK. No problem.
I hope at least I could provide something useful… even a bug!
(Just to double confirm, I am on a live session, not the installed one)

A feature may be missing? “Browse/Restore Tab” doesn’t know UUID of other Btrfs file system.
But it uses the config /etc/btrfs-assistant.conf[Subvol-Mapping] to get defined UUID, but it is for the flat Btrfs layout.

That should only be needed with a custom layout. @limotux doesn’t have a custom layout so it should “just work”. But…it isn’t so it needs investigation.
