HOWTO: Remove invalid (marked as red) devices in /dev?


Hi,

This is a part of my /dev:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...1&d=1320423252

I used to work with mdadm, but for some reason, it left some weird partitions in my /dev...

How can I remove those invalid entries?

Thanks!

why do you want to remove them? the /dev partition is regenerated after each reboot so there's no point in manually removing them
