Configuration files are usually written in ASCII encoding and contain all necessary data about the specific application, computer, user or file.Configuration files can be used for a wide range of reasons, though they are mostly used by operating systems and applications to customize the environment. When scanning a file system is skipped, all file systems mounted in the subtree are skipped too, even if their type does not match any entry in PRUNEFS.Each path name must be exactly in the form in which the directory would be reported by locate(1). All file systems mounted in the subtree of a bind mount are skipped as well, even if they are not bind mounts.The problem that I am having though is when I have the line alias eth1 rt61, it loads the modules on boot, but when I try to bring up the interface using ifconfig eth1 up, it returns eth1: unknown interface: No such device.So I've been trying to play around with the alias and options in to try to get the interface [email protected] The alias options in do not have anything to do with ethernet interfaces, and the configuration file is always used by modprobe with whatever latest edits you've made.Configuration files can be identified with the help of the extensions such as .cnf, or Most computer applications and operating systems read their configuration files at bootup or startup.
A "mapping" is used to map logical interface names (Thanks, I already know how to do that.
In some updatedb(8) implementations PRUNEPATHS can be used to exclude non-directory files. /etc/is a shell script in some implementations, which allows much more flexibility in defining the variables.
Equivalent functionality can be achieved by using the command-line options to updatedb(8).
There are no predefined conventions or standards as far as configuration files are concerned.
