Is it possible to set Linux kernel sysctl settings (those usually set in /etc/sysctl.d) using kernel command line (those visible in /proc/cmdline)?

(Using grub config file /etc/default/grub variable GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="...".)

  • Your question makes no sense to me. What exactly are you trying to achieve? – fpmurphy Dec 25 '19 at 3:39
  • Quiet boot. Setting kernel.printk=3 3 3 3 using kernel command line parameter to avoid having to set it in initramfs to avoid kernel information leaks. phabricator.whonix.org/T950 – adrelanos Dec 25 '19 at 9:40
  • As far as I know, it is not possible to do this from the kernel command line. – fpmurphy Dec 26 '19 at 1:01
