NAME

update-devfsd - recreate /etc/devfs/dir.conf and restart devfsd.

 

DESCRIPTION

This program creates a new symlinks.list file (which lists all files containing sym-links), and a new devices.list file (which lists all files containing details of devices to create) and then restarts devfsd.

It should be run whenever a script or installation program makes a change to a devfsd config file. Also the administrator can run it because it's less typing than "/etc/init.d/devfsd force-reload".

It takes a parameter "-n" if you want it to not cause a rescan of device (just load a new config file), or a parameter of "-f" to force a restart of the daemon (if you have installed a new version of a shared object).

Note that the symlinks.list and devices.list files are not created if there would be no valid content for them.
