Description marek 2000-01-17 14:19:44 UTC
In initscripts-4.80.3-i386.rpm package in /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit
file in line 49 there is sysctl command with an unsuported -p
parameter (should be sysctl -n /etc/sysctl.conf instead)

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2000-01-17 15:03:59 UTC
Um, the sysctl I have supports the -p option, and
that's what used to read commands from a file.

[notting@bobby:~ ]$ sysctl -?
usage:  sysctl [-n] variable ...
        sysctl [-n] -w variable=value ...
        sysctl [-n] -a
        sysctl [-n] -p <file>   (default /etc/sysctl.conf)
        sysctl [-n] -A

[notting@bobby:~/prog/initscripts ]$ rpm -qf /sbin/sysctl
procps-2.0.6-1

Perhaps you have a different sysctl binary/older procps?
It looks like the the -p setting was added in procps-2.0.4;
I'll fix the dependencies on initscripts so it requires at
least that version.
