The Handbook, in section 7.2, (Browsers) lists the proper location to mount linprocfs as /usr/compat/linux/proc . However, the linux base installs itself into /compat/linux (i.e., $LINUXBASE) by default, and attempting to mount linprocfs at the given location will fail.
Install emulators/linux_base-f10 on a system with a default $LINUXBASE
# mount -t linprocfs linproc /usr/compat/linux/proc
The Handbook should be changed to give the proper mount point for linprocfs as /compat/linux/proc
