fdisk unable to open hdb
 
Hi. I'd like to repartition my second drive which is hdb so as root i do /sbin/fdisk hdb and i get an error saying that fdisk cannot open hdb. I know you can't partition a mounted drive but hdb is not mounted and i have not changed any permissions myself. Does anyone know what is going on?

...maybe try : " sbin/fdisk /dev/hdb " .

thanks that was the problem. For some reason i always forget about the /dev/ part.
