https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=261049 Bug ID: 261049 Summary: sysrc fails when trying to set variables containing a dot Product: Base System Version: Unspecified Hardware: Any OS: Any Status: New Severity: Affects Only Me Priority: --- Component: kern Assignee: bugs@FreeBSD.org Reporter: email@example.com sysrc(8) fails when trying to set variables containing a dot. In particular, I need to set vfs.usermount=1 in /etc/sysctl.conf. sysrc refuses to do this, putting out this: sysrc: vfs.usermount: name contains characters not allowed in shell Putting into ticks 'vfs.usermount=1' does not help. Any chance that sysrc can be fixed? Or is it recommendable that I have my script itself change /etc/sysctl.conf? -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
