just noticed this when booting from the 2004.0 ppc universal install cd:

Code:

No /sys to mount sysfs needed in 2.6 and later kernels!

Yeah I noticed that too. Didn't seem to hurt and I just created /sys and added it to fstab after install.

Will you miss out on anything with the live CD without the /sys fs ? Speed scaling for the CPU, thermal or power management ? My screen dimmed OK during install, but I never checked the CPU speed.

All I did was mkdir /sys and then rebooted and everything looks fine. Should I put /sys in my fstab file? And why do I even need /sys? (besides the fact that the kernel needs it)

I added this line to my /etc/fstab:
Code:
none                    /sys            sysfs           defaults                0 0

All works great
