In regard to an old question/thread:


Does anybody know how to force an update of partition
info without a reboot?  Sometimes it will write it and
other times fdisk calls for a reboot. Simply ignoring
the warnings does *not* work, as suggested in the
thread.  Mk*whatever*fs will respond with an

unable to start /dev/hdblah, size reported as zero.

Just trying to simplify a script by avoiding a reboot.
