drakdisk crash

[MAGEIA 5 x64]

I have a problem:
drakdisk crashes with those messages:

Ignore the following Glib::Object::Introspection & Gtk3 warnings
Too late to run INIT block at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.20.1/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/Glib/Object/Introspection.pm line 257.
Subroutine Gtk3::main redefined at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.20.1/Gtk3.pm line 296.
mkdir: error creating directory /proc/bus/usb: No such file or directory

Also, drakboot crashes, when invoked from Mageia Control Center:

The "drakboot" program has crashed with the following error:

mkdir: error creating directory /proc/bus/usb: No such file or directory
...propagated at /usr/libexec/drakboot line 64.
Perl's trace:
drakbug::bug_handler() called from /usr/libexec/drakboot:64

Looks like /proc/bus/usb was moved by newest kernels, and utilites do not know.
Any suggestions?

Right now I have 3 linux instances running; my host which is Mageia 6 running kernel 4.14.89-desktop-1.mga6, a Mint 18 instance running 4.4.0-139-generic, and an OpenSUSE Leap 15 instance with 4.12.14-lp150.12.25-default. None of them have a /proc/bus/usb directory or file. This does not change when I add or remove USB devices that are accessible by these VMs, and there are several USB devices connected to the Mageia 6 host.

For grins, I fired up a Mageia 4 VM instance running 3.14.43-desktop-1.mga4 and it also does not have an entry /proc/bus/usb.

So, while I cannot tell you what your problem is, I can tell you that what you suggest is not accurate and you should look elsewhere.

/proc/bus/usb has been deprecated for ages. FWIW, it's just a pseudo-filesystem of type usbfs which basically mounts /proc/bus/usb on top of itself, similar to how tmpfs or devtmpfs work.

I probably not tried to re-partition the disks for ages - since the times when Mageia 5 was installed.
