As others have said, FreeBSD's /proc doesn't give you cpuinfo or the other metadata that Linux provides, but it shouldn't be completely empty. A line like this in /etc/fstab should be enough to get it working: proc /proc procfs rw 0 0 You should get a directory under /proc for every process on the system, with a bunch of files under each one. Try man procfs for the details.
