Unmounting the cd?


What is that?
I get this error when installing RH 8, when the files start copying sometimes at 40%, 50% 80%...
"An error occurred unmounting the cd. Please make sure you're not accessing /mnt/source from the shell on tty2 and then click OK to rerty."

All i can click is OK, but it reappears.

Suggestions?

well, ARE you accessing it in shell or whatever? open a shell and try "fuser /dev/cdrom" or whateverm the device reference is to your drive, that should tell you what's using it. if that commaznd doesn't help, check the fuser manpage for options. i don't think you need any but can't swear on it.
