    Default How to unmount a "busy" CD?

    How can I unmount a CD on OpenSuse so that I can eject it?

    Problem: Windows Game installer doesn't close all files when asking for next CD.

    Forced unmount (umount -f) doesn't work like as it does on BSD systems.
    Any idea how to get the CD out without having to kill Wine and the program installer?

    Thanks in advance!

    Worked with umount -l.
    Apparently luckily no forgotten file handle this time.

    Btw, Linux seems to be unable to do forced umounts: http://forums.opensuse.org/english/g...ml#post2388359

    Anyway, problem solved.

    Now I cannot mount CDroms anymore.
    ****. I'd hate to reboot...

    the requirement to reboot is an ages old tradition in the wonderful
    world f Windows...the best way to avoid the old tradition is to cease
    using WINE or Windows..

    if you must run applications with WINE, then instead just boot Windows
    and let it have the entire game machine...but, still you will have the
    reboot problem..

    or, you could (instead of running wine) run windows in a VM running in
    Linux.......but, still you will have to reboot Windows from time to
    time...it is just the way it is.

    I have to throw in my uneducated ideas. I noticed that with KDE i can
    just open the CD/DVD tray and it comes out.
    Gnome on the other hand requires to use a command to eject the medium.

    The other thing is, perhaps there is an instant running and you have to
    kill first the process before you can eject the medium.

    Just a guess.

    If the actual problem is open files you might be able to find the
    processes with "
    lsof | grep wine
    "
