Hi guys, when I go to YAST>system> etc/sysconfig editor I notice that a lot of entries are listed twice. This can’t be right surely? Is it a problem or should I ignore it? Could some of you guys look at yours to see if this is common?
Well, when they are only once in displaymanager, we can assume the file is allright. The .orig file might be made by YaST to save the original, or it might be done by a carefull system manager (you?) to have a backup. I do not see that the .orig file influences the strange behaviour.
When you have time left, you could do some experimenting, like changing a value in one of the first bunch, restoring it, changing in the second bunch, Each time exiting the YaST module and looking inside the file to see the wonders of nature ;).
I suppose this is in 11.2? As soon as I hop over (10.3 here, but dual boot) I will check what I have.
Yes, but there may be some idea behind it. Something like: when a parameter is skipped from the file, there still is the notice that it could exist in the orig file. I am not sure is it would be a usefull thing to have. When yes, then it is not very well inplemented imho, the doubles should have been skipped.
