Hello folks,

I had some trouble installing StarOffice (actually it's still not installed).  I had to
basicly download the file from manually, rename it, copy it to
/usr/pkgsrc/distfiles and then use 'make NO_CHECKSUM=yes install'  The 'register' script
somehow doesn't work - probably because sun changed their website a bit.  Anyway now I'm
getting this:

so51a_lnx_en needs procfs to be mounted on /proc.

Does this mean I have to recompile my kernel and add support for /proc?  I always thought
that was a linux thing.... I'm running NetBSD-current, I did a CVS yesterday and
recompiled my whole system, including the kernel.  The ports are also -current, from what
I can tell.

Any help is appreciated (please reply in private since I'm not subscribed to
tech-pkg, thanks :-)
