How can you see the virtual filesystems at root?

They should be /proc and /dev.

What do you want to see? – DaveParillo Dec 3 '09 at 0:55
    
My fried said to me that all Ubuntu's virtual filesystems are at /dev and /proc. My question is based on his statement. – Masi Dec 4 '09 at 2:59
    
that's not all; there's also sysfs at /sys and tmpfs at /tmp ... – quack quixote May 7 '10 at 9:04

Masi I'm not quite sure what you're asking.

To see a recursive detailed listing of all the files in /dev, page by page:

$ ls -laR /dev  | less

To see a recursive detailed listing of all the files in /proc, page by page:

$ ls -laR /proc | less

Was that what you were looking for?

You mean like cat /proc/filesystems ?

Or just a mount ?
