Description Craig McLean 2006-03-29 07:25:47 EST
Description of problem:
kio_media_mounthelper -u <url> on mounted device while the mountpoint is busy
results in the above error. This is because it's looking for fuser in the wrong

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

How reproducible:

Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:

Connect USB drive, allow to mount with kio_media_mounthelper
cd to mountpoint
kio_media_mounthelper -u <url>

Actual results:

Fails due to missing /bin/fuser (fuser is in /sbin)

Expected results:

fuser should allow mounthelper to generate an error dialog detailing processes
holding mountpoint busy.

Additional info:
Suggest we either alter kio_media_mounthelper to be a little more flexible about
the location of fuser.
At a pinch, creating a symlink from /sbin/fuser to /bin/fuser will get rid of
the problem.
Comment 1 David Anderson 2006-06-19 13:14:16 EDT
I get the same issue. I reported it at the KDE bugzilla, and it was closed as 
invalid, because they say they don't use fuser, and said it must be a Fedora 
specific patch.


(This is a re-post after the Bugzilla data-loss crash of June 2006).
Comment 2 Ngo Than 2006-06-20 06:22:26 EDT
it's now fixed in our CVS. The fix will be included in next kdebase rebuild 
for FC5 update. You should please add the symlink fuser to /bin/ temporary as 
the quick workaround.

Thanks for your report.
