Is this a normal behaviour?  What is trying to mount on top of

Comment 2 Ivan Gyurdiev 2005-01-24 21:02:59 UTC
From /etc/fstab (I put that there):
none /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc binfmt_misc defaults   0 0

It's the binfmt_misc filesystem which needs to be mounted 
so you can register binary formats and their handlers. 
It lets you do: ./windowsexecutable, and run windows executables
through wine based on file type magic.

I use it for wine. 

This is the right place to mount it.

You know it's amazing the amount of crap I have installed on this computer.
It's a great testing machine. I have 80% of rawhide + most of pre-extras + 
most of livna + most of jpackage + nvidia driver + cvs wine + transgaming cedega 
+ gstreamer development + other upstream stuff that's broken in Fedora.

Wine is an essential part of any linux distro - how else can I run
Warcraft 3 and Half Life 2 ? Well... it can't run hl2 yet, but 
eventually open source will prevail and it will run better than Cedega.

Comment 4 Ivan Gyurdiev 2005-01-29 16:53:28 UTC
This is wrong - the actual bug is mounting binfmt twice
if it is in fstab. That seems like a bug to me, and I'll
probably file one against inistscripts.

I suggest the change be reverted.

Reverted in 1.21.5-3
