Reconfiguration Boot

A reconfiguration boot tells the system to probe for all connected devices and build the names for them in /devices and /dev. A reconfiguration boot, performed when adding new hardware to the system, is triggered by booting with the -r option.

ok> boot -r

If another device of an existing type (with the driver already installed) is added, and you forget to do a reconfiguration boot, use the following commands to tell the system to recognize the new device.

# touch /reconfigure
# _INIT_RECONFIG=YES /etc/init.d/drvconfig
# _INIT_RECONFIG=YES /etc/init.d/devlinks
