Caja - Unmount USB stick failed

Post#1 by tom2238 » 10 Sep 2019, 19:39

Hello.
I'm trying unmount USB stick in Caja, but i get this error:

Code: Select all

Error ejecting /dev/sdb: Command-line `eject "/dev/sdb"' exited with non-zero exit status 1: umount: /mnt/sdb1: not mounted
eject: unmount of `/mnt/sdb1' failed
It's look like the USB stick is successfully unmounted. However, error dialog always appear. In always fresh mode it works well and no error window is displayed.
How to fix this error?

So,
First reboot = same error
changes=EXIT:/ cheatcode = same error
Always fresh = no problem
changes-ro cheatcode = same error

Is it problem in DE, maybe?

Not if you can boot in AF mode, which includes the DE. What cheatcodes are used in your AF mode? And what modules do you have in your modules directory?

AF mode means running without added user modules.

If you can now eject error free it implies your changes= cheatcode was the hang up. You'll have to save changes you want to keep using a different approach.

In AF (base_only) it work without problem.
With all user modules without changes cheatcode - no problem.
Something is wrong in changes.

Porteus saves all changes in RAM and they are lost when you reboot. Saving changes with the changes= cheatcode requires a mounted device and it remains mounted until you reboot.

If you read the /boot/docs/cheatcodes.txt you might find more options.

An option that I use that might solve your problem is to boot Porteus, create a save.dat file with the Porteus Save File Manager, reboot with a changes= option pointing to the save.dat file, make all your desired changes, and shutdown Porteus saving your changes to the save.dat file, then rename the save.dat file to save.dat.xzm, move the save.dat.xzm file to your modules folder, remove the changes= cheatcode and reboot. Your system is now customized, changes are no longer being saved and the drive can be unmounted. :good:

So, if USB stick connected to /mnt/sdc1 and device is /dev/sdc1, working without problem. Maybe problem with udev config?
