1 Hello,
3 I am a beginner with Gentoo.
4 I have followed the instruction for the installation, and tried to see
5 that I really understand all of them.
6 There is the command:
7 mount -o bind /dev /mnt/gentoo/dev
8 Which I'm not sure I really understand.
9 1. What is the difference between doing thses mount to just copy the
10 contents of /dev into /mnt/gentoo/dev?
11 2. Another thing I've noticed is that some tutorial add to the above
12 also bind to sys folder , and other do not include it.
13 mount -o bind /sys /mnt/gentoo/sys
14 Therefore I would like to ask if it is really required ?
16 Thank you,
17 Ran
