umount fails to unmount ISO image with spaces in path on system shutdown
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:59:09 EDT
Description of problem:
I have the following line in my /etc/fstab file to mount the Fedora Core 5 ISO
image on startup using the loopback device:
iso9660 loop,ro 0 0
Spaces in both paths are escaped with \040.
Mounting of the image when booting the system works without problems but on
shutdown lots of error messages appear indicating that unmounting the image
failed. The problem comes from /etc/rc.d/init.d/halt.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 8.31.1-1
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot the system. The ISO images gets mounted as expected.
2. Shutdown or reboot the system.
3. One obtains messages like: umount: /mnt/Fedora\040Core/5/i386: not found
Umounting fails with a lot of error messages.
Umount should succeed.
