umount refusing to unmount /dev/cdrom

I've had the same problem myself. Take a look at lsof as suggested and "lsof
| grep for /mnt/cdrom". I'm almost positive the result will tell you that
fam is using it. fam is some kind of program that handles the graphics file
brownsers and such... When there is a modification to a file or it's
location or deleted, fam knows and notifies instantly all programs that may
be viewing a file tree. This is useful (is it?) when you delete a file (or
modify or move or...) so that the file browser gets updated instantly
instead of having to refresh the view of files in the directory. Anyhow, I
usually just kill the process and be done with it. My question is: is there
a solution to this problem? Has anyone fixed it? I usually keep my system
updated...Aside from that I haven't spent any time investigating that
I have this annoying and ongoing issue on a FC1 machine; umount refuses
to unmount /dev/cdrom, and the drive refuseses to let go of a disk.
Sometimes I can eject a cd with Nautilus, sometimes not.
Currently, I'm using a lazy unmount and then waiting for 10 or 20
minutes. After that I can eject the disk. I've also tried waiting and
running umount / umount -f but neither seem to help.
Any advice would be most appreciated.
