Description Konrad Gawrys 2000-05-19 06:20:20 EDT
First of all a short note: this problem shows up only when you update some
packages manually.

I only upgraded initscripts package from RH 6.2, procps remained the same
from RH 6.1 (2.0.4-2). But since new initscripts take advantage of sysctl,
the script /etc/rc.d/init.d/network was not able to set up system
parameters properly.

After running sysctl manually, the following error message showed up:

# sysctl -p /etc/sysctl.conf
error: unable to open preload file '/etc/sysctl.conf'

Upgrade to procps-2.0.6-5 solved the problem.

It would be much better, however, if there was a specific requirement to
have the right version of procps.
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2000-05-22 14:17:59 EDT
The initial requirement was for procps >= 2.0.4, since
that's where the sysctl program first *appeared*. However,
it wasn't fixed right until 2.0.6-5, so that is probabyl
a better requirement.

Will be fixed in 5.14-1.
