does nto interest in this context (Google: fuse)

sorry but "It would not allow me" is a really stupid answer
what about posting input and output?

* did you do it as root because naturally this is a root-task
* ln -s /proc/mounts /etc/mtab

yes but this does not help you because /etc/mtab is missing

this doe snot matter
/bin and /usr/bin is the same after UsrMove

since i am pdeantic i fixed as much as possible to point
directly to /usr/bin because why did we made UsrMove if we
rely on the symlinks forever and YES this si critism for
EVERY package-manager which does not fix it's crap
