When the module is loaded, that directory suddenly appears.

PS2: You have Linux Mint-13 (or Mint-12) on you dev system - -
browse /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc and you should find the names of things that are already registered. (python2.7, jar, wine, arm ...) by the distribution's provided start-up scripting.

as in:
Code:
core2quad ~ $ cat /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc/qemu-arm
enabled
interpreter /usr/bin/qemu-arm-static
flags: OC
offset 0
magic 7f454c4601010100000000000000000002002800
mask ffffffffffffff00fffffffffffffffffeffffff
Which is how your Mint-{12,13} system manages to run arm native code on a x86 processor.

PS1 didn't happen, otherwise I would not have added the bit about mounting it manually. I'll go check that again...

Cheers I tried PS2 when we talked about it before. Yep. : ) excellent.

When attempting to discuss and describe these "things" (especially in topposts) in very rough layman's terms, there is a distinct possibility that the finer details are skipped over and in doing so: It probably makes me sound as though I have never read anything about them before.

Rest assured I read as much as I can before these posts. At least two or three separate references. That doesn't make my posts any "Righter" just more-informedly "Wrong"

thanks for the extra details, I will skip ahead to some usage then.
