> I am using the latest F16 kernel: 3.3.0-4.fc16.i686.PAE and am having
> problems with a MicroSD card connected to a USB card reader. This has
> been working fine until recently (at least in F14 on the same hardware).
> The problem is that "umount" does not appear to be working correctly.
> I have an ext3 file system on the card. I can mount it, and I can copy
> files to it. However when I use the "umount ..." command it returns
> instantly (should sync the files to the card). The system says the card
> is unmounted (at least it is not listed with mount, df etc).
> However if I run sync, there is a lot of disk activity to the card ...
> Also if I try and run "mkfs" it says the device in in use ...
> If I mount a blank card it lists the files present on the previous card ...
> This sounds like a nasty kernel bug ...
> Anyone else seen this ?
> Cheers
