Description Jens Kuehnel 2010-05-18 07:55:52 UTC
Description of problem:

We have a *.d for almost everything, but not for sysctl.

We manage our servers with satellite, and some of our rpms would like to change things in /etc/sysctl.conf. It has to be done in the rpm, because some of our customers are not using RHN.

Of course the fix would be trivial.

Add to rc.sysint after:
sysctl -e -p /etc/sysctl.conf

for i in /etc/sysctl.d/*
  test -f $i && sysctl -e -p $i

The same thing exist in Debian/Ubuntu.
