Can I create a empty /etc/ ?


I am using LIDS on your system and it is complaining about programs trying to access /etc/ This file does not exist, I tried to find out more information on why this file would exist but have not been able to.

What would happen if I just created a empty file using touch (/etc/ ) would the apps just continue on using /etc/ they do now ??
