/etc/sysctl.conf is empty


Hi,

I found that /etc/sysctl.conf is empty in my Centos 5.6.
Should it be like this?

Thanks.

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:
Code:
$ 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.)

<edit>
Oh. when the comment says, e.g., see sysctl.conf(5), it means "run man 5 sysctl.conf in a terminal window."
