Yes. Any non-standard systend
stuff should be in /etc/sysctrl.d/
, and the standard things in (or under) /usr/lib/systemd/
On my Fedora 18
system, the /etc/sysctrl.conf
file contains these comment lines:
$ cat /etc/sysctl.conf
# System default settings live in /usr/lib/sysctl.d/00-system.conf.
# To override those settings, enter new settings here, or in an /etc/sysctl.d/<name>.conf file
# For more information, see sysctl.conf(5) and sysctl.d(5).
Note: Fedora is the Red Hat sponsored free distribution used as a test system for possible RHEL programs, and usually has any non-propitiatory packages that might appear in RHEL releases at some later date. (CENTOS is, as you know, RHEL without RH support, trade marks, and propitiatory packages.)
Oh. when the comment says, e.g., see sysctl.conf(5)
, it means "run man 5 sysctl.conf
in a terminal window."
