[openFATE 312343] get rid of /etc/sysconfig/sysctl
Feature changed by: Ludwig Nussel (lnussel)
Feature #312343, revision 12
Title: get rid of /etc/sysconfig/sysctl

- openSUSE Distribution: New
+ openSUSE Distribution: Done
Priority
Requester: Important

Requested by: Ludwig Nussel (lnussel)
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 [done]
2) write patch for sysctl to read /lib/sysctl.d/*.conf [done]
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

#3: Jiří Suchomel (jsuchome) (2011-09-08 09:47:34)
What keys/values correspond to mentioned sysconfig values that are
edited by YaST?

#4: Ludwig Nussel (lnussel) (2011-09-08 09:56:04) (reply to #3)
see /lib/aaa_base/convert_sysctl

#5: Jiří Suchomel (jsuchome) (2011-09-08 11:35:54)
Added attachment convert_sysctl (convert_sysctl)

#6: Jiří Suchomel (jsuchome) (2011-09-08 11:37:27)
New agent for editing /etc/sysctl.conf will be in yast2-2.21.17. SCR
path is .etc.sysctl_conf
