Unhappy Unmounting /mnt/sysimage


I have a problem unmounting my /mnt/sysimage which I really need to be able too, to make a raid on my system disk.

After preparing all other partitions without problems I ran into this unmountingproblem. After reading and searching a lot of lists I am really about to give up. But here is what I have tried to do:

I have bootet my Redhat 9 in rescue mode.

- unmount /mnt/sysimage (gives a device busy)
- fuser -muv /mnt/sysimage (tells me that /bin/sh is runned from /mnt/sysimage/bin
- ps -eah | grep <pid> show me that because of the /bin/sh are in use i cannot unmount.

Is it possible to start the shell from other areas than /mnt/sysimage/bin so I can unmount my /mnt/sysimage and build a raid on my systemdisk?

Best regards.

choose "Skip" when asked to mount existing linux installation, then u will be able to mount/umount later.
