DESCRIPTION

The rmmount and rmumount utilities mount and unmount removable or hot-pluggable volumes. The optional argument can identify the volume by its volume label, mount point or block device path.

rmmount can also take additional mount options if the user has sufficient privileges to override the default mount options.

Unmounting removable media does not result in its ejection. Use eject(1) to optionally unmount and eject the media.

-d

Display the device path of the default device. This device is used if no arguments are supplied.

The following options are supported for rmmount only:

-o options
