These configuration options can be used in two ways:
- They can be read directly
- They can be migrated to other configuration files in /etc/ with the /sbin/SuSEconfig command.
Next time you install a package with YAST, notice that it runs SuSEconfig after completing the installation of the packages. This is because newly installed packages may have included changes to the configuration options in /etc/sysconfig/.
It is important for these changes to be migrated to the proper configuration files. Thus, it is important to run SuSEconfig manually after installing packages manually.
# rpm -i package.rpm # SuSEconfig Starting SuSEconfig, the SuSE Configuration Tool... Running in full featured mode. Reading /etc/sysconfig and updating the system... ... (many config scripts are executed) ... Finished.
