Is there any problem with creating an empty /etc/fstab file in LFS 5.0
chapter 6 before mounting /proc? I don't know why there would be and I
would like to get rid of the "can't open /etc/fstab" message. It's not a
big deal. Just annoying. I didn't see anyting in the FAQ saying this was
good or bad. I am also curious about the rason why it isn't touched
before creating /proc. If anyone knows the reason, please let me know.
Also, will filesystems in /etc/fstab be mounted at chroot? In other
words, will creating /etc/fstab and populating it with /proc and /dev/pts
make it easier to chroot back into the lfs system if I need to leave it
for any reason? Or, am I just doomed to mounting these filesystems
everytime I chroot? Also not a big deal. Just annoying.
I suppose I could try it, but before I do something that could mess up my
LFS build, I thought I would ask.
