Subject: Setting sysctl variables BEFORE the kernel boots and runs init?
I would like to be able to set certain sysctl variables in the kernel, preferably BEFORE the kernel finishes booting and runs init, etc. (or at the worst case, very shortly after init runs) I thought I remembered that there was a way to do this through the boot loader. Can anyone enlighten me? Thanks.
You can configure sysctl options if you create the file /etc/sysctl.conf and put your changes there. Is this what you're looking for?
That happens in the late stages if the game. init is running the main rc script, disks have been fscked and mounted, swap is up. It does happen before network setup, IIRC. It depends on what variables the OP is talking about I guess.
