We are discussing section 7 of said howto. Its all there, on one short page. I actually used the second method and copied/pasted the script, changing the name of the path to /mnt/new, since I like my mount points all in the same corral. ymmv
Handy if you have mountpoints for windows or freebsd], or whatever. That way it doesn't recurse through the mount points as well. This has become my favorite HOWTO page (just discovered it a week before I saw Fear58's post) as I hop around and move my files all over the place (and burn the important fun stuff to cd JIC).
This is why I persisted with this train of thought. Its a good howto (not all are as good)
Originally posted by vectordrake That's the shortfall of the direct copy method. You are correct. /proc is a virtual filesystem, so its always changing on each bootup. All you have to do is make the /proc directory. The first boot will fill it with all the goodies.
Actually, not just the first boot but each boot will, as the proc filesystem is never saved.
