can't unmount


Next problem,, I'm installing diablo II using wine after using the first disc 'installation disc' and selecting which package I want to install etc, it tells me to insert the play disc but I can't get the cd already in to eject.

I've tried unmounting it but it just keeps saying device busy, so I tried copying the installation disc contents to my hard drive so I wouldn't have to use it before the play disc and my problem would be solved. But when I try to install from my hard drive it just tells me to insert the installation disc instead? Does anyone know how to fix this, Thanks.

Copy the installer to a temporary location. Then run the installer. It'll ask you for your install disk, so insert the disk and then mount it. Repeat the proccess until you've completed th install.

are you using kde by any chance?

if so, it's a known bug which has been fixed in kde 3.2... it used to drive me ** mad **!

the only thing you can do, short of going for a full upgrade (which i've done, and 3.2 is much better in lots of ways), is live with it: close anything that might be trying to access your cd-rom, then wait a few minutes before trying to unmount. it's naff, yes, but if you wait, you should eventually be able to unmount....

Last time I tried to update to kde 3.2 my computer went mad and I had to reinstall redhat, I think I forgot to download something. Is there any simple way to download kde3.2 ie with apt-get or a step by step guide somewhere?

hi odd,

since you're from the uk, Linux Format magazine carried KDE 3.2 on their coverdisk LXF52 (April 2004). A quick glance revealed that there is a Fedora-specific set of RPM's, which I'm guessing should work fine with Red Hat 9..

I use SuSE 9, and using the SuSE-specific RPM's, I didn't have too much difficulty getting things going, save for a few glitches which were detailed in the supplied documentation, and easily overcome.

I just managed to update to KDE 3.2 but I'm still having the same problem. I go through the first disc then can't open it to put in the install disc. Typing 'eject' in terminal just gives me a device busy cant unmount, etc message. Anymore ideas?
