Map is not writable
Authored by: tdearborn on Oct 16, '04 09:10:18PM
I found that the map is not writeable because the drive is mounted. You need quit pdisk, 'eject' the mounted drive/partition(s), and then sudo pdisk again.

Also, be careful about using the "L" command in the top level of pdisk, as this will remount the drive you just unmounted. Go straight to "e" and type the device in. You can then use "p" to display the partition map without mounting the drive.
