Hi, is there a command I can use that unmounts all unnecessary drives?What do you mean by unnecessary? If you do not want to access files in
And what command can I use to just unmount one drive?
those drives, you can unmount them with:
# umount /path/to/mount/point
That will unmount just one drive. You can issue the command:
# umount -a
to attempt to unmount *all* the drives. Note that the root filesystem
cannot be unmounted.
If you don't want a particular drive to be mounted at the next reboot,
edit the file '/etc/fstab' and comment out the corresponding lines.
If you are just looking for a way to suppress all the drive icons on
your desktop (assuming you are using gnome) issue the command:
$ gconftool -s /apps/nautilus/desktop/volumes_visible -t bool false
it cant be unmounted.
