/proc/meminfo doesn't exsist...needs to for usb!

I recently have been trying to get my usb camera to work with linux 2.4.19, slackware 9.0 beta, but I am running into trouble when I access the device, it tells me that :


:~$ gphoto2 --camera "HP Photosmart 320" --port usb: -P
Downloading 'IM000082.JPG' from folder '/store_00010001/DCIM/107HP320'...
 
*** Error ***
Could not open '/proc/meminfo' for reading ('No such file or directory'). Make sure the proc filesystem is mounted.
Downloading 'AUTPRINT.MRK' from folder '/store_00010001/MISC'...
 
*** Error ***
Could not open '/proc/meminfo' for reading ('No such file or directory'). Make sure the proc filesystem is mounted.

I haven't been able to find any help on this one, (usenet groups..etc) so I giving away 200 pts for anyone who helps me!

Don't forget to put it in /etc/fstab to mount at every boot:
