Why on earth would you want to remove the /proc filesystem? It's a virtual filesystem. It doesn't take up any space on your hard drive, but it gives you a way of directly interacting with the kernel.
Well from what I've read the info in /proc is read once by programs for kernel info.
It might just take a nano-second to do so from the regular directory on the hard
drive as well, leaving another filesystem out of RAM. Works OK so far.
You can probably manage without /dev/pts - if you never use a tty. But one day you will need one.
Here again this is read once by programs as far as I know and right now on my machine there is nothing in it.
Something in RAM with nothing in it.
I looked at my regular etc/fstab the other day and somehow the /proc filesystem was commented
out. I don't know how, I didn't do it, but I've been using it for awhile like that without that loaded in RAM.
Commented out the /dev/pts filesystem also just to test and converse about these. I'll put them
back in just a few days and leave the system as-is then.
thanks for the response(s)
