Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 117076
Unable to unmount USB disk
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:37 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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.mount usb disk
2.umount usb disk
device always busy
Unmount it by right clicking on the disk and select unmount.
Does that work?
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
