Unmounting smbfs shares fails when you are in the path of the share
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:26:56 EDT
Basically if you do the following:
mount -t smbfs -o guest,rw //windows/mp3 /mp3
then you are in /mp3 and you try and unmount the share it gives a device
not so bad by itself
but when you reboot/halt the system from this path, the filesystem is not
properly unmounted, as it just sits there forever in the shutdown phase
trying to close the share. thus the local filesystem is not properly
The 1st part is not a bug, the second looks like it may be a problem in
reference counting in the kernel. I don't see any faulty code in mount.
The only way that could happen is if the shell hasn't been killed by the time
the unmounting of remote filesystems is run. This looks like an order of
operations issue in the shutdown scripts.
