Thanks, > Rhonda Unfortunately I adopted procinfo too late, testing was already in freeze, and new upstream are rejected by the release-team. From 1:2.0.208-1 procinfo was replaced by procinfo-ng, the old procinfo in testing/stable is completely wrong, broken on 64bit platforms, many features are broken, other features are pointless on 2.6 kernels (cat /proc/filesystems, done as a every 2 seconds poll?)
