[SOLVED] Does /boot/loader.conf.local work for you ?
Apparently it doesn't work on my 2.1-BETA0 … (any settings there seem to be ignored)
Setup seems OK:
grep ^loader_conf_files /boot/defaults/loader.conf
loader_conf_files="/boot/device.hints /boot/loader.conf /boot/loader.conf.local"
Yes, I've set things there and they're respected.
What are you trying to set that is "ignored" there?
Sure there isn't a syntax causing the file to be invalid?
I've tried various settings, e.g. ecn:
sysctl -a|fgrep ecn
Whereas when I set them from CLI instead, it always works. Btw user miles267 seemed to have a similar problem, check http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,50484.0.html
I've checked dmesg for any errors in parsing loader.conf.local, but I couldn't find any.
I'll probably do a new 2.1-BETA install from scratch and try again.
If it's not a loader tunable you may not be able to set it there. If you can set it run-time, just add it to System > Admin on the Tunables tab.
This worked, thanks for the tip!
