Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 212637
sysctl using deprecated syscall
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:46 EST
Description of problem:
dmesg says it all:
ip_conntrack version 2.4 (4095 buckets, 32760 max) - 228 bytes per conntrack
process `sysctl' is using deprecated sysctl (syscall)
eth0: link up, 100Mbps, full-duplex, lpa 0x45E1
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. See dmesg output
Functionality is all ok.
The procps-3.2.5-sysctl-ignore.patch patch has been commited to CVS and will be
included in a next package update. Thanks for your report.
procps-3.2.7-8.3.fc6 has been pushed for fc6, which should resolve this issue. If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.
I can confirm that this is fixed in the latest version.
Fixed long since. Closing.
Just a note -- the patch is about to be dropped (probably after RHEL 5.2 is
relased or in F-9), because sysctl -a is supposed to print all the values. Even
the deprecated ones and the warning should be there. If any script calls
"sysctl -a | grep something" or sysctl <deprecated sysctl> it's the script that
must be fixed not sysctl.
