upgrade continued

i decided i had nothing to lose and set about trying to upgrade KDE again on my mandrake 9.0 system. after finally catching up with all the dependencies BEFORE installing KDE, i got a long string of stuff...stuff i'm not familiar with. i'm not sure if it's really bad or something (i'm still running). so here it is:

warning: /etc/inittab created as /etc/inittab.rpmnew

the main thing i'm wondering about is the last line...what exactly does that file do? is it ok that it's been renamed?

anyway, thanks.

so i looked at the file myself...and there is now an "inittab" and an "inittab.rpmnew". so it renamed the old one and made a new one. this file is where the settings for x and whatnot are held, as far as i can tell. i'm assuming it's ok that it's been renamed and replaced.

am i right?

Yes, you're right. And if you would want to check differences you can do "diff -urN <old file> <new file> | less".
