Description Brian G. Anderson 2004-02-27 19:15:38 EST
Description of problem:
I have one of those flash drive USB key disks.

First of all I don't have a "Disks" sub menu when right clicking on
the gnome desktop.  I have to mount from the command line.

After mounting it, it appears on the desktop with the read-only emblem
even though I can open it and write to it.  This may be a different
bug, since all my desktop items have the read only emblem.

Since there is no "Disk" menu I have to umount it from the command
line.  However, the disk is always busy even when I have closed all my
applications.  I do a "lsof" and I don't see any processes with it
open.  Only when "telinit 3" to get out of gnome can I unmount the disk.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.mount usb disk
2.umount usb disk
Actual results:
device always busy

Expected results:
unmount disk

Unmount it by right clicking on the disk and select unmount.
Does that work?
Comment 2 Brian G. Anderson 2004-08-27 11:29:39 EDT
This problem no longer occurs with the most recent kernel and initscripts.

I can unmount it using the right-click or using the disk mount panel
