    Default PBUnmountVol not working on Mac OS X ?

    I recently posted a message for help about unmounting network volumes.
    My problem is that on OS 10.2.6, "PBUnmountVol" function returns me no
    error but the network volume still appears on the desktop.

    I tried on Mac OS 9 and it works perfectly! ... what is the
    difference?

    Has anybody used succesfully this function on OS X ? ... I'm sure I
    don't have opened files ...

    Regards ...

    I don't know about PBUnmountVol, but the BSD call unmount needs superuser
    permissions to run. This could be your problem.

    Fred,

    Thanks for your help but I'm trying as a superuser, actually the
    "umount" command works fine ... Is anybody using the PBUnmountVol
    function under OS X?

    Thanks.
