Emerge config file needs updating

emerge config file needs updating-1

This means that the use-new option picks either the merged or pre-merged file depending on which is displayed on the screen.

I am not saying that my way is the best way by any means.DO NOTE - I can not tell you what you can safely remove from your system as you need to know your hardware and what is safe to uninstall, remove from config files and remove from kernel.I am going to try and stay very basic here so you can get the idea. Tip: If you have another partition or hard drive, you might consider putting the config-archive there, so that if your drive with /etc on it gets trashed, you can use dispatch-conf's records to rebuild your config. The first time you update a config file with the new untouched config file, dispatch-conf will copy it to your archive directory in the corresponding location with a '.dist'.Dispatch-conf also has the ability to use the rcs (revision control system) version management tool (similar to, and precursor to, cvs or subversion) to create a log of all changes ever made to config files. rcs basically creates diffs of the changes between two files. From this point on, it will compare 'current' and 'archive.dist'.A user is merging the system package set, new (either a full copy of the old file, or if the user has rcs installed and enabled as per this article, just the differences.

After you setup some external tools, you can test them by putting two similar files as Note: The left pane will hold the original config file saved as the merge output, so make changes in the left pane and save that pane.

I don't want to update the config files, I want to install the package!

So then why is it not asking to install the packages. Here is what it says: livecd mnt # emerge --ask gnustep-base * IMPORTANT: 10 config files in '/etc/portage' need updating.

(Strictly speaking, "git add" only puts hunks in the index, bun you understand what I mean, right? /bin/bash # The configuration section starts from the word "configuration:" ######################################################################## # Description: # A helper to utilize "git add -p" for dispatch-conf "merge".

# Arguments: # 1: Filename which will constitute the new configuration candidate # after your edit # 2: the config file used so far.

This is simply my way of how I do things with a fresh install to make a stable system.
