thunar volman: cannot eject, (remounted right away)


Hya,

My Lenny penguin (i386), has xfce with thunar volman.

It works fine with USB memory stick. However, when external drive is connected through USB, it is impossible to eject it.

Following is what happens.
1. select icon (thunar window, left panel) to eject
2. Alert says "An unknown error occured." then another window opens (this is a default action when new drive is connected.
3. /var/log/syslog says that the volume is dismounted, then mounted.

This loop goes endless.....

So far, I have not found solution among /usr/share/doc, web and man pages..

Any suggestion will be appreciated.

Happy Penguins!

Try using the command line eject command with the -vd option. If that doesn't work then try command line eject with -vdm. Even if these eject commands don't work they should give you some more clues as to what is going wrong.

So find where the USB memory stick is mounted with this command:

mount

Then try these eject commands:

eject -vd /media/wherever

eject -vdm /media/wherever

Hya,

Thanks for reply,

Following is what I found.

1. eject does not work at all (both user and root). and no information either.
2. pumount can unmount, (by user) and not remounted. And left panel of thunar has icon, which can be mounted or ejected (eject goes back to same situation as #1)

Any further suggestion will be appreciated

Happy Penguins!

Hya,

Self reply:

I found that this trouble is drive (HD) specific. The other day, I tried some other one, which worked fine.

Happy Penguins!
