On making the latest install onto a new system i put PCLos minime onto a new sata drive.
Whilst doing so i created two new partitiions, "data" and "backup", both using the live-cd install screen.
Now, when i boot, i find both drives appear as mounted and the only way i have to unmount is to do so via PCC. This lasts for the session only, once rebooted i am back to square one.
# Entry for /dev/sda1 :MiniMe

(the additional labels,eg "minime", "backup", in the hash lines were put in by me later)
/dev/disk entry ("by-label)
/dev/sda1 / ext3 rw 0 0
none /proc proc rw 0 0
none /dev/pts devpts rw,mode=0620 0 0
/dev/sda7 /backup ext3 rw,relatime 0 0
/dev/sda5 /data ext3 rw 0 0
/dev/hdb6 /home ext3 rw 0 0
/dev/hda5 /tmp ext3 rw 0 0
none /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc binfmt_misc rw 0 0
none /sys/fs/fuse/connections fusectl rw 0 0
(all are empty, the data and backup entries were put in via "mkdir" in an attempt to solve the problem)
Right clicking as "user" produces the following error message,
"Unfortunately, the device system:/media/sda7 (/dev/sda7) named 'backup' and currently mounted at /backup could not be unmounted.
Unmounting failed due to the following error:
Device to unmount is not in /media/.hal-mtab so it is not mounted by HAL"
changing to "root" via the "switch user" tab in the kicker start button produces the same result.
Can anyone suggest a means to get rid of this annoying behaviour?
Other actors which may have a bearing are the new system, i have no previous knowlege of Sata, the setup has one sata drive and the two(now much changed) ide drives, the cdrom is a new sata and is the only rom device.
The system is now an AMD 64 bit job; changed from an old 32 bit Athlon.
Any guidance greatly appreciated.
edit Just tried "umount -f" , still the same; removal is not persistent.
