Description m.edge 2000-02-27 15:53:02 EST
Using the command:

sysctl -p

as per man pages fails, thus:

[root@raptor /etc]# uname -a
Linux raptor 2.2.12-20smp #1 SMP Mon Sep 27 10:34:45 EDT 1999 i686 unknown
[root@raptor /etc]# ls -l sysctl.conf
-rw-r--r--   1 root     root           24 Feb 28 09:49 sysctl.conf
[root@raptor /etc]# cat sysctl.conf
[root@raptor /etc]# sysctl -p
error: unable to open preload file '/etc/sysctl.conf'
[root@raptor /etc]#

This is fixed in the procps in rawhide...
