14Beta -- /proc is empty

Fresh install on newly formatted partition of 14B
Retired with nothing better to do I was watching the package names go by on a full terse install.
I noticed something unusual.
Quickly hitting 'scroll lock' and 'shift page up' revealed.
gvfs-1.12.3 installed then

"Reloading system message bus configuration"
"/proc is empty (not mounted?)"

I don't know if this is an issue, but having never seen it before I thought it best to report to the gurus. The rest of the install proceeded as expected until

"eject: /dev/sr0 Input/output error"

running 14 beta now without further issue

Solved for me

Guess I should have looked at for gvfs first before reporting.

"# Reload the dbus configuration just in case
chroot . /etc/rc.d/rc.messagebus reload

# Try to run these. If they fail, no biggie.
chroot . /usr/bin/glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/ 1> /dev/null 2> /dev/null
chroot . /usr/bin/gio-querymodules @LIBDIR@/gio/modules/ 1> /dev/null 2> /dev/null"

No biggie for Pat
Certainly no biggie for me

just doing my best to help

There is something wrong there, as '@LIBDIR@' should be substitued when the gets added to the package.
