who to unmount
Authored by: Anonymous on Jun 10, '02 11:15:17PM

O.k. so I tried this hint out. Yes it worked. Now how do I unmount the share ? I've tried telling the share icon on my desktop to eject, but it claims to be in use. I have no files opened from the share.

how to unmount
Authored by: froz on Jun 11, '02 04:17:06AM

This seems to be a bug in 10.1.5 Normally, you would find the share mounted in /Users/name/share (if you followed the original hint) and would unmount it with:

sudo umount /Users/name/share

However, this does not work. I was able to remove the share by making a second connection in the Go menu Connect to Server and then dragging the
new share icon to the trash, e.g:

I connected to smb://workgroup;hostname/mp3 which is the same share I had mounted as "share". When I tossed the mp3 icon, I got a volume in use error, but both the mp3 and share icons disappeared.

I don't know if you have received an answer but I just found out how to do this and thought I would share.
I tried to use umount /<directory where share is mounted> and it didn't work. The reason I knew it didn't work was because I mounted the share with the Connect to server option in the finder and it would append a "-1" to the share name. I used the mount command without parameters and saw that it still had the share mounted at /Volumes/share. I used umount /Volumes/share and it worked fine.
