Maybe it is just me, but somehow this doesn't fit together.

Second, i didn't say you should issue "fuser -u /opt" - i said you should consult the man page. This would have told you that you should direct your query against the device (just like i said in post #8). In your case, if you look for processes on "/dev/hd2 mounted at "/usr" (which i am not sure about any more):

fuser -u /dev/hd2

If you get just back just the name of the device this means there are no processes working on this device, that is all.
