Cannot mount /poc and /sys under rescue system in 13.2

Hello. I am trying to access the installed system with the rescue system,
booting from the instalation DVD; I follow the instructions in the start-up
guide (login as root):

(1) mount /dev/sda6 /mnt
(2) mount --bind /dev /mnt/dev
(3) chroot /mnt
(4) mount /proc --------------> cannot mount, not such directory
(5) mount /sys----------------> cannot mount, not such directory

Thank you in advance.

openSUSE 13.2 x86_64 KDE standard version

Ok, you have things in slightly wrong order. The “chroot” part should come when you are all done. So in your case it would be:

mount /dev/sda6 /mnt
mount --bind /dev /mnt/dev
mount --bind /sys /mnt/sys
mount --bind /proc /mnt/proc

and finally…

chroot /mnt

To be fair, his method used to work. I think it stopped with 13.1, when some entries were removed from “/etc/fstab”.

I’m guessing that there’s a out-of-date Wiki entry somewhere that needs adjusting.

Oh, and your suggested method normally works well.

Thank you. This works.
