Re: Directory ownership

I recently was unable to change ownership, permissions, etc., of a
directory. Finally I discovered that I somehow had mounted the
directory twice, and that the second mount was inhibiting changes.
And in one instance, I discovered that "umount" was not un-mounting a
directory. But then I found the following trick in the umount manual
-r In case unmounting fails, try to remount read-only.
I simply re-mounted the already-mounted directory, and then umount
worked as expected.
Have you tried restarting the machine (an easy way to ensure that
double-mounting is not the problem) and then attempting to change
ownership, permissions, etc.?
