8.10. Mounting Kernel Filesystems

8.10.1. Mounting Additional Kernel Filesystems

Mount the proper virtual (kernel) file systems on the newly-created directories:

mount -vt devpts -o gid=5,mode=620 none /dev/pts
mount -vt tmpfs none /dev/shm

The mount commands executed above may result in the following warning message:

can't open /etc/fstab: No such file or directory.

This file—/etc/fstab—has not been created yet (unless using the boot method), but is also not required for the file systems to be properly mounted. The warning can be safely ignored.
