bash: /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc/register: No such file or directory   

Directory /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc/ empty.

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Compile RH7.1 kernel 2.4.2-2 with CONFIG_PROC_FS=y, CONFIG_BINFMT_MISC=y 
2.echo to /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc/register fails.

Actual Results:
bash: /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc/register: No such file or directory  
       

Expected Results:
No error message.

Additional Information:

Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2001-05-10 08:24:59 UTC
you probably have to type
mount -t binfmt_misc none /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc 
first as with all 2.4 kernels....
The users of binfmt_misc (Wine) in RHL do this automatically for you.
