I still don't see how you're getting that to work. If you had ; instead
of | between the commands, then I could see it working.
$ cd /proc ;cat version
Linux version 126.96.36.199-78.2.56.fc9.i686 (mockbuild@) (gcc version 4.3.0
20080428 (Red Hat 4.3.0-8) (GCC) ) #1 SMP Thu Jun 18 12:47:50 EDT 2009
But it still seems like far more messing around than's needed. If you
want to read that file, simply do so.
i.e. cat /proc/version
I see no point in changing the current working directory to /proc.
[tim at localhost ~]$ uname -r
