    # tail /var/log/preload.log
    loading conf from /etc/preload.conf
    failed loading conf from /etc/preload.conf: No such file or directory
    Exiting
    loading conf from /etc/preload.conf
    failed loading conf from /etc/preload.conf: Key file does not start with a group
    Exiting

    I tried copying /etc/default/preload to /etc/preload/conf, but that didn't work. preload config showed:

    # cat  /etc/default/preload
    # Default settings for preload init.d script
    # sourced by /etc/init.d/preload

    # Use Idle scheduling class (see start-stop-daemon(8), ionice(1) and
    # ioprio_set(2)).

    PRELOAD_IOSCHED="-iosched idle"

    # Enabling this should lead to lower disk activity.
    # OPTIONS="-l /dev/null"

    What's wrong? Thank you in advance. :)
