Sorry if unrelated, but is there any way to avoid system crash after ejection of unmounted USB-storage device? I had a plenty of painful crashes today after several power losses on my external usb-hdd (ntfs slice mounted, FreeBSD 7.1-RC1). It would be nice to have a "safety-net" here, considering these devices are so easilly deatachable by cats and ppl lurking around :) Any advices? -- Best regards, Jeff _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
