Problem unmounting file systems (SIMPLE)

Post by Sellar » Fri, 07 May 1999 04:00:00



I apologize for posting such simple question, but the manuals did not
work in this case :)

/usr/local is mounted in a separeted partition. KDE is installed on it.
When I have to shutdown the system, /usr/local is not unmounted because
it's in use. I think this happens because the system is running in level
4, and I'm using KDM as login manager.

Can anybody help me to solve this simple problem?

T.I.A.

Make sure that KDM and KDE are killed before the file systems are
unmounted-- ie that the /etc/rc.d/rc6.d/K* file which kills kde and kdm
is killed before the unmount occurs.
Ie make sure that that kill file has a low enough number
I do not know where KDM installs its start and stop control program
(actually it probably does not unless you got it from Redhat. So make a
script file which you can put into init.d whichwill halt the KDM and put
a pointer to it in rc6.d with a K initial letter (if you halt it in the
script by doing script stop.
( the unmount is in S00reboot which is a pointer to init.d/halt which does
the unmount)
