/proc gets mounted automatically?

Hi,

I'm not sure, whether the init procedure is still the same...
On my LFS the proc fs is mounted at startup in the rcS Skript.
I will compile the a new kernel later, so I'll look for a kernel option then. But I'm nearly sure there is none.

Hope that helped!

Hagen
