    unmounting

    This is driving me nuts. When I try to unmount the floppy drive or CD-ROM I get this: "Device or resource is busy". I close every window or program, move out of the folder they're mounted on and it's still busy.
    Is there a way of finding out what's keeping them busy or force unmounting even it's busy?

    should be installed on any system

    for instance:
    [20:32:29][davy:/usr/local/kde3.1-CVS]$ fuser -v /home/davy/music/mp3

    USER PID ACCESS COMMAND
    /home/davy/music/mp3 davy 9487 ..c.. bash
    root kernel mount /home/davy/music/mp3
    so if there's any other process other than the kernel listed, kill it or whatever and u'll be able to unmount
