Description Tammy Fox 2000-10-09 14:37:15 EDT
Automatically mount CD when inserted is checked in GNOME Control
Center->Peripherals->CD Properties.  When I insert a data CD, it automounts
just fine.  The command fuser -m /cdrom returns that /cdrom is in use by
the GNOME file manager.

I close the file manager, and fuser -m /cdrom returns no uses of that
directory.  As soon as I eject the CDROM, the message "VFS: busy inodes on
changed media." appears in the current VC and in /var/log/messages.  There
are no files listed in /cdrom, but the mount command returns that /cdrom is
still mounted.

After I issue the command umount /cdrom, the messages disappear.  If I do
not issue the umount /cdrom command, the messages do not go away.

You are not supposed to remove mounted media. The fact that no process is using
an inode doesnt mean it isnt cached.
