Talking LFS 6.6 sysfs mounting problem on boot

Hello guys,
after solving my previous problem with SCSI drivers, I encountered new one with mounting sysfs on boot:
can't find /sys on /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
Unable to create devices without SysFs filesystem

I built the kernel with sysfs support:
and here is my /etc/fstab file on LFS partition:
# Begin /etc/fstab
/dev/sda7       /       ext3    defaults 1 1
/dev/sda6       swap    swap    pri=1    0 0
proc   /proc   proc  defaults  0  0
sysfs  /sysfs  sysfs defaults  0  0
devpts /dev/pts  devpts  gid=4,mode=620  0  0
tmpfs  /dev/shm  tmpfs  defaults  0  0
# End /etc/fstab
any help appreciated!

glad, that you were able to solve the error by yourself. Please mark the thread as [SOLVED] and share your solution (the typo in your mountpoint for sysfs), so others can also profit if they run into a similiar problem.

Thread Tools -> mark as solved.
