Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 187228
kio_media_mounthelper fails with "sh: /bin/fuser: No such file or directory"
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:28 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):
Steps to Reproduce:
Connect USB drive, allow to mount with kio_media_mounthelper
cd to mountpoint
kio_media_mounthelper -u <url>
Fails due to missing /bin/fuser (fuser is in /sbin)
fuser should allow mounthelper to generate an error dialog detailing processes
holding mountpoint busy.
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
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
(This is a re-post after the Bugzilla data-loss crash of June 2006).
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.
