EDIT: By obsolete I don't mean bad/unnecessary (I agree with
/proc being a mess). Modularity is a good thing and I love it. I mean is: information of the system, held (in
/sys) that is findable somewhere else.
I couldn't really find much information about
/proc. Besides both of there contents not being part of the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard (because the way they, look like/are build up is kernel version depended)
/sys doesn't even have it's own
/proc has it's own man page, and oh boy it has pretty much explanation and still I have some folders and files (for example
which are not mentioned in it.
/sys is pretty new right? And before it existed all of the info that
/sys gives was part of
Is this still the case?
Can all the info form
/sys be found on
/proc in one or another form? That would make a documentation for
/sys obsolete because it's just an expansion with user friendly design, right? Or is there any system info in
/sys that isn't in some other form present in
If this is the case where is the place that explains
/sys to linux amateurs?
