    Obsolete NFS Mount Points


    Does anyone know how I can delete obsolete NFS mount points? I have a couple that are just there but don't work as they they point to devices that no longer exists. I have tried deleting the entries from the fstab file, but the NFS mount points are still present.

    Grateful for any help,

    you should just unmount it.

    Code:
    umount /mount/point

    They are already unmounted!

    They are already unmounted! The remote share icon of a networked hard drive is always there. If mounted then there is a small green triangle bottom right of icon indicating that the media is mounted. So how do I delete these unmounted media icons from my konqueror 'system:/media'?

    thanks

    Have you tried to right click and delete?

    I'm not at home presently to take a look.
