umount.davfs - Umount-helper to unmount a davfs2 file system
umount.davfs [-h | --help] [-V | --version]
SYNOPSIS (root only)
umount.davfs is a umount helper program. It is called by the umount(8)
command. Its purpose is to prevent the umount command from returning
unless mount.davfs has synchronized all its cached files with the
dir is the mountpoint where the WebDAV resource is mounted on. It may
be an absolute or relative path.
While for local file systems umount(8) will only return when all cached
data have been written to disk, this is not automatically true for a
mounted davfs2 file system. With this umount helper the user can rely
on the familiar behaviour of umount(8). To inform the operating system
that the file system uses a network connection, you should always use
the _netdev option, when mounting as davfs2 file system.
Depending on the amount of data and the quality of the connection,
unmounting a davfs2 file system may take some seconds up to some hours.
If the mount.davfs daemon encountered serious errors, umount.davfs may
return an error instead of unmounting the file system. In this case try
umount -i. The -i option will prevent umount(8) from calling
Print a help message.
-f -l -n -r -v
This options are ignored. They are only recognized for
compatibility with umount(8).
PID-files of running umount.davfs processes are looked up here.
No known bugs.
