KDE System Guard problem with fresh install of Mandriva 2006.
This is the exact mesage I get from ksysguard when I hit ctrl+esc.

Message from localhost:

Cannot open direcory '/proc'!

The kernel needs to be compiled with support

for /proc filesystem enabled!

This isn't really *that* big a deal for me, as "ps aux" gives me the info I need,
but it is rather annoying.

I freely admit I'm a linux/mandriva noob, so bear with me here.

What can be causing this? It's a fresh install, I completely wiped the system and removed all partitions before installing.

I didn't discover this little problem until *after* I had set up all my servers.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

what does the command mount output? If you look in /proc is there anything there?

Yeah, everything in /proc appears to be normal.

But I don't quite follow what you mean by mount. I mean, I know how to use the mount command, but...

Am I supposed to mount /proc or something? Please elaborate.

I meant post the ouput of the mount command.

For example:


[michael@sincity ~]$ mount
/dev/hda1 on / type ext3 (rw)
none on /proc type proc (rw)
none on /sys type sysfs (rw)
none on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw,devmode=0664,devgid=43)
/dev/hda6 on /home type ext3 (rw)
nfsd on /proc/fs/nfsd type nfsd (rw) on /raspberry type nfs (rw,rsize=2048,wsize=2048,addr=
[michael@sincity ~]$

I had thios problem once on a clean mandriva install
(1 out of 10 installs )

ksysguard loaded and nothing would load in the tabs, no processes no data nothing.

i had to remove ksysguard and reinstall it.
urpme ksysguard --auto-select && urpmi ksysguard --auto-select

do check 2 things though
1. does ksysguard work as root?
2 does Running 'ksysguard' from commandline work? (Not CTRL+ESC)

I forgot about this post on here some time ago.

I found my problem a short time after I posted this. When I installed '06, I set the security level too high. It would only allow ksysguard to run as root.

Oh well, problem solved. :)
