Re: [linux-lvm] Unmounting file system hangs up...

Here is what is in /etc/fstab.

CentOS-5 is on a hard drive of the same computer. /etc/fstab does not explicitly mount CentOS-5, but Fedora-10 somehow mounts all hard drives including NTFS drives. I must have done something to do this, but I forgot what I did. Do you have any idea what I did and how I remedy this situation?

Not properly unmounting a network (NFS, CIFS, etc.) mount point shouldn't break the target file system in any way, and shouldn't cause fsck to report errors.
Is CentOS hard drive on another computer?
In that case, what network file system protocol is used, if any?
If it's local hard drive, then, it's probably mounted as local file system (ext3 or other), and, not properly unmounting it, may cause fsck to complain.

The contents of /etc/fstab and /etc/mtab or /proc/mounts may help you.

fstab contains a static list of fs mounted at boot time.
mtab and /proc/mounts contain the list of currently mounted file systems, including ones that might have been automatically mounted by your desktop environment when HAL notified it.
