Did you restart after you commented out /proc in fstab? can you check to make sure it isnt there and see if the system runs as expected?
Info from current /etc/mtab
/dev/sda1 / ext4 rw 0 0
none /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc binfmt_misc rw 0 0
gvfs-fuse-daemon /home/user/.gvfs fuse.gvfs-fuse-daemon rw,nosuid,nodev,user=pf 0 0
/dev/sdc1 /media/SDHC ext4 rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=hal 0 0
I'm running off of the sda1 right now. The /proc filesystem mounted was done by
the kernel not etc/fstab. That's supposed to give it quicker access to programs
than if read directly from the hard drive from the /proc directory.
My big disk it doesn't matter, but my flash drives seems to run slower with that
mounted in etc/fstab. I think that's because it's reading and writing from
RAM to disk and vice-versa with 0 cache to guide it. Going thru a whole search
I'll let it run a few days, but it already has run for at least several months without the
mount in etc/fstab. Any problems I'll post back before I remount it in etc/fstab.
