- you try to access them. Also, you cannot read the files with older
- version of the program less: you need to use more or cat.
-
- It's totally cool; for example, "cat /proc/interrupts" gives
- information about what the different IRQs are used for at the moment
- (there is a small number of Interrupt ReQuest lines in your computer
- that are used by the attached devices to gain the CPU's attention --
- often a source of trouble if two devices are mistakenly configured
- to use the same IRQ). The program procinfo to display some
- information about your system gathered from the /proc file system.
-
- Before you can use the /proc file system, it has to be mounted,
- meaning it has to be given a location in the directory hierarchy.
- That location should be /proc. A command such as "mount -t proc proc
- /proc" or the equivalent line in /etc/fstab does the job.
-
- The /proc file system is explained in the file
- <file:Documentation/filesystems/proc.txt> and on the proc(5) manpage
- ("man 5 proc").
