Mounting sysfs ?


Hi,

I am trying to mount sysfs in a redhat 2.6 kernel. Can I mount sysfs by just adding an entry in the fstab or will I have to explicitly create /sys directory. Is it possible to do this without creating the /sys directory manually ?

Any help is appreciated..

thanks..

Why not get the latest fedora with all that already installed.

/sbin/mount -t sysfs none /sys -n in init scripts im in slackware so my init scripts are different. I know sys is mounted right after proc.

Thanks guys for your help.

Yeah, I had to create the /sys directory. I was able to use mount /sys command in one of the init scripts which (I think) reads the fstab entry to mount the sysfs.

Thanks again.
