Unmounting Firewire Drives in FC3
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:13:13 EST
I've got an old firewire ipod. When I plug it in, It mounts perfectly
as an external drive in Fedora Core 3. An icon apears on the desktop
and it shows up as "/media/HAL_S_IPOD".
When I unmount it using "Unmount Volume", the ipod does not say "ok to
disconnect", as expected.
To make that happen, I must
1) "Unmount Volume." or 'umount /media/HAL_S_IPOD'
2) 'sudo /sbin/rmmod sbp2'
3) Physically disconnect the ipod.
4) 'sudo /sbin/modprobe sbp2'
If I leave off the last step, it does not recognize the drive when I
plug it back in.
The "Unmount Volume" command should *just work*.
(I filed this bug against umount (util-linux-2.12a-16) becasue I did
not know which component should be responsible for this; sorry.)
