Last modified: 2007-12-11 16:21:41 UTC
Most recent kernel where this bug did not occur: 2.6.24-rc3 (probably)
Hardware Environment: Two laptops, i386 and x86_64
Software Environment: Debian testing/unstable
The /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc/ directory is empty. The "register" and "status" files seem to have disappeared.
~$ ls /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc/
~$ mount | grep binfmt_misc
binfmt_misc on /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc type binfmt_misc (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
