Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

So when i'm logged into Lucid via ssh, and type exit to end the session, umount -a is run first by the system. I see the follow message before it logs me out:

umount: /home: device is busy.
    (In some cases useful info about processes that use
     the device is found by lsof(8) or fuser(1))<p>
umount: /var/run: device is busy.
    (In some cases useful info about processes that use
     the device is found by lsof(8) or fuser(1))<p>
umount: /dev/shm: device is busy.
    (In some cases useful info about processes that use
     the device is found by lsof(8) or fuser(1))<p>
umount: /dev: device is busy.
    (In some cases useful info about processes that use
     the device is found by lsof(8) or fuser(1))<p>
umount: /: device is busy.
    (In some cases useful info about processes that use
     the device is found by lsof(8) or fuser(1))<p>

How can i stop this?

The question seems abandoned. My guess is the OP has a log out script of some kind. –  bodhi.zazen Feb 25 '12 at 1:02

1 Answer 1

however, seems that it doesn't unmount the folders at all..

well let's do a read to ``man on_exit man page, maybe some configuration on the machine you are log in is playing with you.
