1 Will rm -Rf /proc hose a system? I didn't run rm -Rf /proc directly,
2 but I did do it indirectly. I had mount --bind /proc /mnt/gentoo/proc
3 and then forgot about it. I then ran rm -Rf /mnt/gentoo to start a
4 stage 3 again forgetting that /boot and /proc were both mount
5 --bind[ed] to /mnt/gentoo.
7 Could this hose my system? I don't want to reboot yet if it could. I
8 want to fix what ever I can.
10 Grrr, I just looked and /boot/ is wiped clean! I guess I can redo grub
11 and I still have my kernel under /usr/src. What about /proc? Would
12 running rm -Rf /proc kill anything?
