[openFATE 312343] get rid of /etc/sysconfig/sysctl
Feature changed by: Bruno Friedmann (bruno_friedmann)
Feature #312343, revision 7
Title: get rid of /etc/sysconfig/sysctl

openSUSE Distribution: Unconfirmed
Priority
Requester: Important

Requested by: Ludwig Nussel (lnussel)
Engineering Manager: (Novell)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org

Description:
/etc/sysconfig/sysctl and therefore boot.proc and boot.ipconfig should
be dropped in favor of directly using /etc/sysctl.conf Distro defaults
should be provided via /lib/sysctl.d./*.conf so we don't produce .
rpmnew files on upgrade.
1) write script to convert old setings in aaa_base's %post [ready]
2) write patch for sysctl to read /lib/sysctl.d/*.conf [ready]
3) adjust yast modules
Affected yast modules:
* security (IP_TCP_SYNCOOKIES, IP_FORWARD, IPV6_FORWARD, ENABLE_SYSRQ)
* network (IP_FORWARD, IPV6_FORWARD)
* tune (ENABLE_SYSRQ)

Can we also think about it's full integration with systemd.

+ #2: Bruno Friedmann (bruno_friedmann) (2011-06-04 12:33:57)
+ Just discover that's buggy. It forget to treat the IPV6_PRIVACY status
+ variable. I've launch discussion on factory ml about.
+ And yes Yast2 are unable to understand those new location. Didn't see
+ here the bug report of that functionnality against Yast
