Description Niklas Johansson 2012-02-29 09:39:34 UTC
I think we should remove the following two lines 

proc        /proc        proc    defaults             0 0
shm         /dev/shm     tmpfs   nodev,nosuid,noexec  0 0

Because those two line no longer exist in the /etc/fstab file you get during the stage3 installation.

I think it is confusing for users, especially new people.

My two cents

Reproducible: Always

Sorry. This is concerning this section
Comment 2 Sven Vermeulen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-03-01 20:54:12 UTC
Yup, /proc is mounted by openrc's /lib/rc/sh/ whereas the /dev/shm (and other /dev stuff) is done by /etc/init.d/devfs (although I still need to find out where it is actually called)
Comment 3 Sven Vermeulen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-03-01 20:58:44 UTC
Ah its a dep from procfs which is in the boot runlevel

Fixed in CVS. Thanks for reporting!
