Question Making Changes Permanent


Hello,
I'm making changes on fstab, .bash_profile and more system files. How can my changes be permanent without restarting the system ? How can I reload fstab or other system files to make the changes permanent for all consoles and X Window ? Thanx a lot..

for changes in .bash_profile to take effect, you just need to logout the user and login again.
for changes in fstab i think if you do as root
mount -a -o remount
it will remount with the new options. If there are drives/partitions that are new, you might have to do
mount -a
after this (not sure).
