I have Puppy installed on an old laptop and one way or another I ended up with a file inside /usr/bin that has the Stale NFS file error. I've tried to look around for a way to fix it but all places I've looked have only been for the situation where it's on a drive you're able to unmount. At least I think they were. I certainly don't know what I'm doing well enough to know for sure. Obviously restarting the computer has been tried as well as attempting to unmount things, but I can't unmount the drive that is running the unmounting.
Having problems with external hard drives. I may be wrong, but I suspect they originated with an upgrade to 10.04 last Christmas. Around that time I also started using Amazon's S3 storage system, and, as a consequence, I stopped using my WD 80G external drive, previously used to backup my important files.
A week or so ago I decided to start using the WD drive again. I can't remember exactly what I did, but it wasn't happy - never caused any problems before. When I plug it in, the on-off light as the front keeps flashing on and off, and when I try to remove the drive I get the message: Error unmounting volumne An error occured while performing an operation on "My Book" (Partition 1 of WD 800BB External): The device is busy
Details: Cannot unmount because file system on device is busy Assuming the device had died - it's about 5 years old - I bought a 160G Samsung S-Series drive - my but they do look neat! Unfortunately, this doesn't seem to have solved my problem. I plugged the new drive in, and it happily appeared on my desktop. It seemed a good idea at the time, but I then started to format the drive - using the default option of FAT. All went well at first, but then the format process stopped.
My new Samsung drive now seems to be operating pretty much as the WD device, I can't copy to the drive, and attempts to unmount it generate a response similar to what's happening with the WD drive. Currently, although plugged in, I can't see the drive on my desktop, although it appears under Places. However, when I try to mount the drive, I get the message: Unable to mount SAMSUNG A job is pending on /dev/sdb1
I have gone senile but what happened to the Unmount option when I right click on a Desktop CD icon in 10.04? I only wanted to make an ISO image and K3B says it cannot unmount the CD. I don't want to Eject it. I have a clever idea! I will add Mount Manager to the panel. Mount Manager should be called Eject Manager because that is all it does!! Even Krusader seems to have lost its ability to unmount a device.
I am in the middle of copying a dvd with k9copy and it is asking me to insert a recordable dvd.so i try to eject and it won't let me, it says failed to eject media one or more volumes are in use. There is nothing else using the disc so I don't get it?
I installed KDE 4.4 through Ubuntu's repos and then upgraded to 4.5 via backport PPA. I am unable to unmount any USB device. It keeps saying it's in use by another application. Even if I plug it in and do nothing, but then try to unmount, it gives me this error?
basic script on unmounting devices, as that option was removed in Ubuntu Lucid?I'm aware I can possibly recompile the nautilus source and all that, but I think a much easier method would be to just add a script for such. Something basic, like this, but that includes ALL devices that can be unmounted (such as flash drives, external hard drive, and sd/xd cards), not just disc drives. Pretty much what the right click 'Unmount' option in nautilus used to be like:
After reboot I saw this communication:Quote:Target filesystem doesn't have requested /sbin/init.No init found. Try passing init= bootarg.and I can't shutdown the system normally because it stops (live cd too).Then I can't repair this partition because it is always busy.
I'm running both Ubuntu 11.04 and Windows XP Home Edition. I have my hard drive partitioned with 90 GB for Windows and 60 GB for Ubuntu. Here's the problem: When I booted up Ubuntu for the first time, the Windows file system appeared as a second HDD. My dad told me that I need to make it so that drive doesn't appear or be read only or else he will be uninstalling Ubuntu because of the risk that some program will write to the Windows file system. I personally am not worried about that happening, but he clearly is. Remember, I'm brand new to Linux so please make things simple for me to under stand!
I've recently purchased a 4gb "ultra speed" flash drive. It reads and writes just fine on both my laptop and desktop. Both of which are running Ubuntu 9.04. However, when I go to unmount the drive from my desktop system, the drive icon on the desktop disappears, but it remains in the "media - File Browser".
There is one change in the file browser though. When I unmount the drive, the "eject" symbol disappears from next to the drive in the "media - File Browser" but the drive icon itself remains. The light never extinguishes on the USB drive, and when I click on the icon that remains in the File Browser, the USB drive mounts itself again and reappears on my desktop and the eject symbol reappears in the File Browser.This drive unmounts just fine from my laptop.

We have a server running Hardy. I configured it as an NFS client and mounted a share. The NFS server is remote and accessed through TCP only (no UDP allowed through the firewall). Now I've mounted it, though, I can't unmount it!
Code: david@scatha $ mount | grep nfs example.com:/home/david on /mnt/tmp type nfs (rw,tcp,addr=188.8.131.52) Now when I try to unmount it:
I am unable to mount partition in ubuntu 10.04. Icons for different partitions are not coming within "Places". Every time I have to manually mount the partition or CD or DVD and manually unmount it. Seldom it shows the partition icons within Places>Computer. Then the partitions are getting mounted upon double clicking its partition-icon. But I fail to unmount the partition as it throws the error "media/partition_name is not in the fstab (and you are not root)."
I have a problem while rebooting my 9.10 server when I have SAN partition mounted. The message is something about the swap that can not be cleaned during the process. All works if I unmount the partitions before shutting down or rebooting.So I though to create a bash script that unmounts the parts during runlevel 0 and 6.I've created a simple script like this in /etc/init.d:
After upgrading from 9.10 to 10.04 I am unable to unmount usb drives when I'm not root. Every time I have to type "sudo umount /media/... " and give my password. When I right click the drive and click unmount, I get the following message: Unable to unmount disk1 unmount: /media/disk1 not is not in the fstab (and you are not root)
I have an external hard drive which connects to a usb port. until recently i could unmount it by right clicking on the desktop icon and selecting unmount. now when i try that it tells me that i can't because the device is not in fstab and i am not the root. i checked mtab and it had this line '/dev/sdb1 /media/usb0 msdos rw,noexec,nodev,nosuid 0 0' i changed that to '/dev/sdb1 /media/usb0 msdos user,rw,noexec,nodev,nosuid 0 0' thinking that would fix it, but it didn't. i unmounted using 'sudo umount /media/usb0' and restarted my computer and now the line in mtab reads '/dev/sdb1 /media/usb0 vfat rw,noexec,nodev,sync,noatime,nodiratime 0 0' and i still can't unmount without using the sudo umount command. i also tried adding '/dev/sdb1 /media/usb0 msdos user,rw,noexec,nodev,nosuid 0 0' to fstab and that didn't help
After in-place upgrade from 9.10 to 10.04, the message
Code: Unmount of /dev/nbd0 failed appears on the console at shutdown, with a warning that data may be lost, and followed by a 10 second countdown, after which shutdown continues normally. Syslog shows this one line at each boot:
Code: Oct 23 10:04:16 m2a74am kernel: [ 1.203334] nbd: registered device at major 43 Nothing gets mounted explicitly at /dev/nbd0, so I am puzzled about the error message on shutdown.
When running linux (Lubuntu 10.04) my windows partition mounts automatically and can be opened and edited in file manager. Is there any way I can prevent it mounting when linux launches, prevent it from being mounted in linux, and (ideally) prevent it from being displayed/opened/edited at all from linux?(In case it's relevant:

How do you unmount for safe removal external drives (such as USB sticks) in Lubuntu? In Nautilus (Ubuntu) under the File menu there are options Eject and Safely Remove Drive; but in Lubuntu I can't find anything like that.
I have an ipod shuffle that will only charge if I eject it. This is easy to do with Ubuntu as I only have to right click on the ipod icon and select "eject." If I select unmount instead, the ipod does not charge. I am now trying out kde 4.6 with Kubuntu, but cannot see a way to eject. There is an option to safely remove the ipod, but this does not correspond to the eject option in Ubuntu as the ipod does not subsequently charge.
there are some drives in my system that appear to be always mounted (were at some point) that I cannot get rid of - i checked fstab, and do not appear there - 2 are related with the use of truecrypt, and 1 is from an exernal HD
I am having this problem. I use an external usb hard drive with my pc running on ubuntu 11.04, If I keep the hard drive idle for a few minutes, ubuntu unmounts it. I suspect there are some options for this, so I looked into the Power Management section, but found nothing that can solve the problem.
When I have several documents open in OpenOffice.org and save one of them to my Pen/Flash drive, and then try to unmount, it won't let me. It says an OpenOffice document is using the drive. Here is the problem: The document refers to isn't the one I just saved to the Pendrive. It's a document saved on my Hard Drive! I close it (which should not be necessary) and try unmounting again. Now it tells me to close the document saved on the Pendrive.
I don't understand why I need to close ALL Openoffice documents to unmount the drive. Not sure if this is a bug in OpenOffice or in Ubuntu. Either way it's annoying and is a complete waste of time to be messing around with closing and opening documents every time I want to unmount an external drive.I have tested this on various computers all running Ubuntu 9.10, with both Gnome and LXDE. Same results. Ubuntu, I hate you!
