i will explain why this makes no sense:

grep will complain if e.g. the file '/proc/mounts' does not exist,
otherwise it output the lines matching the pattern or an empty result
if there is no match.

if there is really an error, it's a good idea NOT to suppress it.
so please resend without this 2>...

bye, bastian
