    Default Failed to start Apply Kernel Variables message on dup to 20200914 snapshot

    I just dup'd Tumbleweed to the 20200914 snapshot, and have a new 'Failed to start Apply Kernel Variables' error message on boot:

    From journalctl -b:

    Code:
    Sep 15 21:01:59 localhost systemd[1]: Finished Load Kernel Modules.Sep 15 21:01:59 localhost systemd[1]: Starting Apply Kernel Variables...
    Sep 15 21:01:59 localhost systemd[1]: systemd-sysctl.service: Main process exited, code=exited, status=1/FAILURE

    Sep 15 21:01:59 localhost systemd[1]: Failed to start Apply Kernel Variables.
    And from # systemctl status systemd-sysctl.service:

    Code:
    ● systemd-sysctl.service - Apply Kernel Variables     Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/systemd-sysctl.service; static; vendor preset: disabled)

    Everything seems to work, at least so far.

    Is there a setting I can edit on my own? Should I file a bug report?

    I found and updated this bugzilla: https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1174504

    It affects the ping command, but the failure above shouldn't affect any system, it was a partial and apparently untested solution. You can wait for a fixed package arriving in TW.

    Yes, I am seeing the same.

    Yes, I would suggest that.

    That was quick! Thanks for the response. I'll bookmark bug https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1174504 and wait for the fix to arrive in TW.
