Difference between synoinfo.conf in /etc/ and /etc.defaults?

Recommended Posts

When moving from DSM 5.2 up to DSM 6.1 (yes I'm brave... :mrgreen: , system working fine now though... :cool: ) I learned a lot about Xpenelogy and its boot sequence, settings, drivers and also about linux. Spent the whole weekend doing the upgrade with different problems but all working fine now.

(See my posts Some config Settings and getting SHR as a RAID choice enabled again)


During my upgrade I did quite many edits of both the grub file and the two files /etc/synoinfo.conf /etc.defaults/synoinfo.conf.

I am a little bit confused though what the different impact /etc/synoinfo.conf /etc.defaults/synoinfo.conf have since they (usually?) are identical and what happens if I for example change a setting only in /etc.defaults/synoinfo.conf or change only a setting in /etc/synoinfo.conf?

During (re)boot synoinfo.conf from etc will be replaces with one from etc.defaults. Because you have to reboot anyway to make changes apply, you can only edit the one in etc.defaults.
