Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 443396
Disk mount applet shows useless empty error message on failed unmount
Last modified: 2009-07-14 12:17:57 EDT
Description of problem:
When trying to unmount a filesystem via the disk mount applet
while the filesystem is still in use, gnome-mount displays a useful
| Cannot unmount volume |
| An application is preventing the |
| volume 'foobar' from being |
| unmounted. |
| [ OK ] |
It comes from gnome-mount and has no window title, but at
least it shows some kind-of informative text.
After the user clicks [OK], /usr/libexec/drivemount_applet2
shows this useless error dialog:
xwininfo tells that the title should be "Unmount Error".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert any hotpluggable device with a filesystem.
2. Wait for hal/gnome-mount to work their magic and mount the FS.
3. Open terminal window and "cd /media/proper-dir" to simulate the app.
4. Click "Unmount foo" in the disk drive mounter applet.
Either a useful error message or none at all, as gnome-mount has already
popped up one.
The useless empty error dialog does NOT pop up when trying to unmount the
filesystem from the Gnome file manager thingie (is it still called
nautilus?) or by running "gnome-mount -u -d /dev/sdb1" from a terminal.
This makes me think the "Disk Mounter" applet is the culprit.
Oh, and why does the "*Disk* Mounter 2.22.1" (About dialog) correspond to
the /usr/libexec/*drive*mount_applet2 executable (emphasis mine)? That is
confusing, to say the least.

Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
