Since I also work on HP system I can assure you that what these guys have been
saying about vold is not vaild on HP. vold does not exist.
When I need to umount /opt all I do is stop all process that are running from the /opt
filesystem. You can find this out by using the fuser command. I running this
command as "fuser -cu /opt" This will return the PID it look like 354mo. You then
run ps -ef|grep 354
I use the "/sbin/init.d/filename stop"
If you are running shareprinter you will need to stop these by editing the
/etc/inittab and change respawn to off then killing the PID. Other wise then
ever you kill it it will start up a new process.
On other thing make sure you are not currently in the directory /opt when
you try to umount it. That will give the device busy error as well.
I hope this helps
