I've not found the command syntax to unbind /dev & /sys from /mnt/gentoo and I need it since it turns out I screwed up the partitioning and don't want to reboot the damn system just to solve the problem.

I've attempted umount -f /mnt/gentoo but get the damn message that /mnt/gentoo is busy (no shit since both /dev and /sys are connected there). Any help would be appreciated

graceful exit:

Code:
exit
cd
umount -l /mnt/gentoo/dev{/shm,/pts,}
umount -l /mnt/gentoo{/boot,/proc,}
reboot

reboot not required for your purpose

Thanks for the confirmation as I'd remembered how to do it.

Nice to see how to get proc and such also unmounted.
