What does echo alias "char-major-10-224 off" >> /etc/modules.conf do?


What does this command do and what exactly does it mean?
echo alias "char-major-10-224 off" >> /etc/modules.conf

I got it from the instructions:
rpm -ev laus
echo alias "char-major-10-224 off" >> /etc/modules.conf
service crond stop
rmmod audit
service crond start
rm -Rfv /var/log/audit.d

Have you looked into /etc/modules.conf?

An alias is another name for something/someone.

char-major-10-224 is an alias for off.

This was a hotfix for cPanel on RedHat Enterprise 3 that helped prevent the auditd service from crashing the server. It is still used from time to time if no other fix is available and auditd is suspect of causing problems.
