reload partition table information
Posted on 2004-09-10
How do I reload the partition table information w/o rebooting the system (VFAT) ?
I have deleted two (all) partitions from a second drive and then created one merged VFAT part. using FDISK, then used mkfs.vfat to format.
Now, how do I make linux (FC2 , kernel 2.6.x) to reload the partition information without rebooting the computer? Right now, when mounting /dev/hdb1 I find the old contents of the first partition I deleted, and that seems normal as that's the info it "remembers" .
thanks for any pointer
