I checked my kernel and found the PROCFS and PSUEDOFS options were in
there. I have added this line to my fstab:
"proc /proc procfs rw 0 0"
I no longer see this message:
> # strace portupgrade vim
> strace: open("/proc/...", ...): No such file or directory
> trouble opening proc file
(Google was my friend here!) However, my problems seem far from over.
When I run strace now (e.g. "strace -o /root/strace.out portupgrade
vim"), nothing happens. Typing 'top' shows this line:
PID USER PRI NICE SIZE RES STATE TIME WCPU CPU COMMAND
829 root 96 0 1352K 696K STOP 0:00 0.00% 0.00% strace
or sometimes it looks like this:
838 root 8 0 1356K 704K pioctl 0:00 0.00% 0.00% strace
but the strace tool just doesn't want to generate any output. Strangely,
I don't even see ruby appear in the top output when I use strace.
Please guys, I would be so grateful if someone could offer me any advice
or suggestions on this.
