Later in the instructions the proc filesystem (a virtual interface with the kernel) as well as other kernel psuedo-filesystems will be mounted.

Minor problems

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing as of 2020-06-03.
  1. I would replace "Now that the partitions are created" with "Now that the partitions have been created"
  2. I would add a comma to the following sentence (between "allocation" and "ext4"): "Instead of the classic ext2/3 bitmap block allocation ext4 uses extents, which improve large file performance and reduce fragmentation."
  3. I would replace "Apple's OSX" with "Apple's macOS" (see Wikipedia page)
  4. I would change "Similar to vfat above it does not store UNIX permission settings" to "Similarly to VFAT, it does not store UNIX permission settings"
  5. In the initial list of available filesystems, ext2, ext3, and JFS lack a link to their corresponding Gentoo wiki articles

"information on the issues present in btrfs in the latest kernel branches is avaliable at the btrfs wiki status page."

The word avaliable should be replaced by available. -- Fturco (talk) 07:04, 6 July 2020 (UTC)
