Sadly, this happens all too often. Mandriva should take care of this automatically, but it sometimes runs into problems. umount /mnt/removable
is what you need to run from the command line to unmount the device. But, if another process is using it then this won't work.
You can check which processes are using the device using lsof
This will produce something like:
- Code: Select all
COMMAND PID USER FD TYPE DEVICE SIZE NODE NAME
kio_file 8302 graham 6r REG 8,1 5018608 6042 /mnt/removable
PID is the column you need, as this is the process ID for whatever it is that's accessing your device. You can kill the process using:
kill -9 8302
Then you should be able to umount the device. Crude, but it should do the trick.
