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


This is a part of my /dev:

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?

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