Clearing Connections

    I am running NovelClient 0.91-1 on Mandrake 10.1. Setup worked fine I am able to login and browse the server. Even got the login script to work.

    I have noticed that once I have browsed the directory using Konquerer I cannot clear connections. I get the "Device or Resource busy" error message. Closing all windows has not helped.

      The only time I have seen this is if I try to close connections from the connections tab and an application still has the server open.

      The connections tab on the Novel Client window has a disconnect button.  Can you disconnect the server from here? 

      Cheers, Ken

      It isn't caused by Novel Client but maybe you can try this to track down the cause: use the lsof command to find what is holding that directory open and causing the umount to fail.

      'lsof | grep <your mount directory>'
      'man lsof' tells how to use all the options.
      Once you find what is holding it open just kill that process.

      Thanks all. I have not solved it yet but I appreciate the advice.

      to sipherix: I discovered that using a variable (%1, %USER etc) did not work in the map dialogue. The rest worked as given in the documentation. Setting the scripts option  to not close allowed me to troubleshoot the scripts.
