       umount.davfs - Umount-helper to unmount a davfs2 file system


       umount.davfs [-h | --help] [-V | --version]
       umount dir

SYNOPSIS (root only)

       umount.davfs dir


       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
       webdav server.

       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


       -V --version
              Output version.

       -h --help
              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.
