RFE: use a subdirectory for configure files
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:59 EST
I like this readahead concept and will probably use it a great deal
but never for what someone else thinks is the best config for me :)
Could we move the readahead config files from /etc into a
subdirectory? Perhaps /etc/sysconfig/readahead/default/* knowing that
there will be many configurations that are not going to gain an
advantage by loading evolution into memory such as low memory laptops
but they may want their own configs in /etc/sysconfig/readahead/lowmem/*.
I don't see how these long filenames in /etc/ justify they eyesore
they create in a simple ls. Half the columns are lost adjusting for
readahead.early.files. A subdirectory would be more suitable. A
second subdirectory, default above, would make sense for those of us
not buying a 2005 Dell that will probably never gain from a default
readahead but would like to make use of the interesting idea.
I could picture a readahead config collection that does very different
profiles based upon what the user wants at that time:
But most of all, please move these long filenames out of the top etc
directory and into a subdirectory so those of us that like console
over X11 don't projectile puke when we look in the FC /etc directory :)
There is /etc/readahead.d/ in FC6 now. I don't expect support something like
"profiles" (server, laptop, ...) for readahaed.
