Changing media without umount/mount

Changing media without umount/mount

Post by Chris Wes » Sat, 05 Aug 2000 04:00:00

Does anyone know if there is a way I can change media in a removable media
device without umounting and remounting.
The program that needs to do this knows the path to the mount point but not
the device which is mounted there.
I know I could parse /proc/mounts to get the device and then umount / mount,
but I'd like to avoid this.
I want to use media that will always contain the same filesystem.

1. Any way to switch removable media without umount/mount?

su - root, 1 step...
