YaST Online Update "changed configuration files" warning


Another question about YOU (in SuSE 10)...

Just done an update. At the "applying delta" / install stage, I got the following warning:

Quote:
During the last package installation, some changed configuration
files were detected. Find the log files for the install process in
/var/log/YaST2/. Check whether your configuration files are still
up to date.
I've grepped /var/log/YaST2/y2log for '.conf' and 'config'. Many, many lines returned. The one that seemed most relevant was:

Quote:
2006-02-17 10:14:24 <1> linux(32137) [liby2util++] PathInfo.cc(_Log_Result):276 rename /var/lib/YaST2/you/config.yast.new -> /var/lib/YaST2/you/config
The last-named file (.../you/config) is a short file, which just seems to contain details of the last update (server name, etc). Am I checking the right thing? How do I know whether it's up-to-date? the update did include a "sysconfig" package.

A little confused,
Rob

It means YOU installed some package that has a configuration file which was modified from the original installation and for that reason, it will not overwrite it, since you may lost some important settings.

It's a warning just to you know a package may have a new configuration file. Nothing to worry about, unless a package has changed the format of config file in a so radical way that the previous one is no good anymore.

regards,
