    Umounting

    Check this out:
    Code:
    linux:/home/cloverm # umount /dev/sda1
    umount: /auto/camera: device is busy
    umount: /auto/camera: device is busy
    linux:/home/cloverm # fuser /auto/camera
    /auto/camera:
    I cannot umount /auto/camera becuse is busy. fuser does not show any program using it.
    a.) How can I find out what keeps it busy?
    b.) How can I safely umount my camera?

    (I ended up rebooting the damn computer : as a quick fix, but I need a better solution.)

    Or try this

    Code:
     sudo killall fam
    umount /dev/sda1
    Could be the same problem that's been plaguing me and my mp3 player since day 1. Are you using a 2.4 kernel? I found the problem disappeared when I upgraded to 2.6.
