Reconfiguration boot in RedHat Linux

If new hardware is not recognized, a reconfiguration boot might help. During the reconfiguration boot, the anaconda hardware configuration program is run with the –reconfig option.

To perform a reconfiguration boot, create an empty file called /etc/reconfigSys:

touch /etc/reconfigSys

and reboot the system.
