After I manually edited a partition table on a device in OS X, the corresponding devices don't get created automatically under /dev.
How to I tell the OS X kernel to reread partition tables as I would do this with
partprobe on Linux?
I believe the answer is to eject the disk and reinsert it. You can run
diskutil eject /dev/disk1
in terminal, changing the 1 in
/dev/disk1 to the disk number of the drive in question.
