I am unable to umount /usr in single user mode on an old system.
I believe the system is baselayout-1 and is amd64.
The trouble is open files, at least some of which appear to be related
to bash and locale (see the files below).
I use grub. On the kernel line can I specify sh instead of bash?
I know sh is linked to bash, but hope that it will not use locale.
I need to umount /usr so that I can resize it (I use lvm and have
already extended the logical volume). Specifically i want to execute
(I realize I will probably need an e2fsck).
On my new system (baselayout-2), this was easy as /usr is not mounted
when rebooting into single user mode.
