Problem installing Diablo II under Winex CVS

I am having a problem installing Diablo II using winex, CVS version.

During the installation, setup asks for different cd's to be inserted. The problem I am having, is that I can't eject the CD.

Every time I try to unmount it, the following error comes up:

umount: /media/dvd: device is busy
eject: unmount of `/dev/hdb' failed

Now I know this is a common problem. After searching the web and this forum, I had tried the following to solve the problem:

-I made sure that I did NOT start the wine from inside the CD-Rom directory.

-I tried to open a second terminal, su'ing in as root and trying to eject the CD from there. Same busy message.

-As a root, I had tried to enter "supermount -i disable", but I get the "bash: supermount: command not found" message (I am using SuSe 9.0)

Now I know that you are probably tired of answering this question again and again, so if a solution is posted elsewhere, please forgive my sloppy searching and post a link to the answer.

Thank you.

So you aren't in the cdrom directory on anything terminals or file managers? That is the only thing I can think of. If worst comes to worse you could always use a small tool and insert it into the small hole on the front of the cdrom face plate.

Winex is having issues with kernel 2.6 ... keep that one in mind

I have the latest packaged version and had the same problem, this is the support post i got :

There may currently be some issues with 2.6 kernels and copy protection. It seems there is a kernel config setting that can copy protection not to work. We are investigating this.

For Diablo 2, however, I know that the game cd must be inserted into the same cdrom as it was installed from to pass copy protection. You should also check your cdrom DEVICE permissions and remember to follow any links the devices may have.

i hope this helps

I was able to solve the problem by following ProtoformX's advice.

Aparantly, before I had always ran "setup.exe". When I had tried "install.exe", it allowed me to eject easily.

Thank you VERY much to all people who had tried to help me!
